And luckily you can use redhat7 or centos7, that has python 2.7 and will

Probably the closest thing to setup documentation that exists for 
CalendarServer are the Docker integrations contributed in PRs 513 
<https://github.com/apple/ccs-calendarserver/pull/513>  and 489 
<https://github.com/apple/ccs-calendarserver/pull/489>  (neither are merged so far; see following paragraph):


Depending on the scope and nature of your new projects, I would advise 
somewhere between "some caution" and "an abundance of caution" as you 
consider whether to use CalendarServer. On the plus side, the test 
coverage is good (both unit tests and integration tests) and the 
existing features are pretty stable. On the not-as-plus side, have a 
look at the code frequency graph 
<https://github.com/apple/ccs-calendarserver/graphs/code-frequency>  while ruminating on the fact that this project uses Python 2.7, the support lifetime <https://pythonclock.org>  
for which ends in just over one year. The bulk of the dependent modules 
(i.e. Twisted) are safe on 3 at this point, however an unknown amount of 
work remains to get CalendarServer safe for 3. Someone gave this a quick 
shot which is detailed in this PR: 
https://github.com/apple/ccs-calendarserver/pull/501 - I don't know if 
this produces a functional service, but I do know that the tests don't
