I got a bug report that https://www.freebsd.org/ports/finance.html is not up-to-date. The page will be updated apparently only once a week. The search script https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/ports.cgi use a database less than a day old.
Looking at en_US.ISO8859-1/htdocs/ports/Makefile I think the problem is that we do not check every time if there is a newer INDEX files is available. We run fetch(1) in mirror mode, but don't call it until ./INDEX was removed.
Attached is a patch to solve the issue.

This looks fine to me.
A commit references this bug:

New revision: 51323
always check if there is a newer INDEX database is available
The page is still a little bit outdated. Today it says in the footer

instead the expected 3-January-2017
I guess this happens because we are using the env variable PINDEX_OVERRIDE and the file is outdated.
This may have been fixed...?
