(more complete answer than you need, but it is useful info)

The web pages are updated at the end of the dinstall run on master, just
after the archive push mirroring is started. This usually ends up being around
3:00 PST. The updates take around 20 minutes - the bulk of that being the
updates of the Package section. The command to do push mirroring then waits
30 minutes to give the archive mirrors a chance to finish before doing it's thing.

To give you some hard numbers, here are the dates of the more recent logs on va.
The times are actually from when the mirror starts as the logs get rolled
at that time. It takes about 20min for a mirror update.
(all times PST)

Yes, a bunch of dates are missing. This is what happens when others screw
with your scripts and introduce errors. Grrr.
