Apple currently believes the outage was caused by a change Apple made to their 
network configuration which had unexpected consequences. 3 of the IP addresses 
used by MacPorts became inaccessible outside Apple. Other macOS forge IP 
addresses used by MacPorts and other projects were not affected. The services 
on the servers using those IP addresses have been moved to a new server outside 
of Apple.
