"In fall 2018, Apple will stop bundling open source services such as Calendar Server, Contacts Server, the Mail Server, DNS, DHCP, VPN Server, and Websites with macOS Server. Customers can get these same services directly from open-source providers. This way, macOS Server customers can install the most secure and up-to-date services as soon as they’re available."  https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208312 <https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208312>

For which of these (and others listed on the link) is there already a port, esp. for the recommended (or most nearly identical) replacement?  How about management GUIs?

Should there maybe also be a mention on a FAQ or wiki page of the collective availability of easily installable alternatives via MacPorts?  If MacPorts is able to provide replacements for most of the functionality, would further publicity be appropriate?

Anything else that might be an opportunity to mitigate this annoyance that I haven't mentioned?
