    55!DarwinPorts began as part of Apple's [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenDarwin OpenDarwin] effort, which was set up to provide an interface between Apple's developers and the open-source community. The !DarwinPorts web site was initially located at darwinports.opendarwin.org. In 2003 the project acquired its own domain, darwinports.org; both darwinports.opendarwin.org and www.darwinports.org continued to be used interchangeably for several years.

The old address www.darwinports.org continues to redirect there. The MacPorts project also owns www.macports.com and www.macports.net.
