Hi Fernando,

On my side, yes, I never considered Tauthon dead, and I've even contributed to
it upstream.

On portmgr's side, I don't know at all. Last information I have is portmgr
public mail announcing deprecation ("Python 2.7 removal outline"). I'll just
point out that python27 has an expiration date of 2020/12/31 but is still in
the tree. Sure, no ports depend on Tauthon, since this was forbidden, so it's
indeed technically trivial to remove it, whereas removing Python 2.7 would
imply removing Chromium et alter.

But I think this is irrelevant to the matter at hand. This new version of
Tauthon  fixes lots of security problems reported to Python 3.x, and as such
should be imported before expiration, just for the fact that some people that
want to use it will resurrect the port locally, so it's better they have the
most recent version.

And yes, this also means that Tauthon is now more secure than Python 2.7, and
even has fixes not yet in 3.x.
