Description

http://prothon.org (the homepage of prothon, according to its Portfile) seems to be a computer-security blog. It has no relation to the old programming language Prothon, as far as I can tell.

I agree. According to whois records, the current incarnation of prothon.org was registered in 2007, whereas the last time the version of the prothon port was updated was in r10196 in 2005.

I've done some research.

It looks like Prothon was retired in 2004, to be replaced by a new language PyCs.

PyCs' domain pycs.org belongs to someone else now as well. PyCs changed its name to Spry in 2004.

Spry's domain spry-lang.org belongs to someone else now as well. The last time the Spry web page appears to exist is March 2005. I see evidence the domain spry.to was also used at one time, though it is unregistered now.

I see a post from someone in 2008 asking what ever happened to Prothon / PyCs / Spry, with no response.
