Bug#612497: www.debian.org: packages.debian.org search results are inconsistant. outdated mirror?

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal

Searching for packages returns inconsistant results. For example, sometimes
it initially shows results *only* from sid, but will eventually return correct
results after a few minutes and/or a few refreshes.

If I wait a few minutes and try again, sometimes I get results from sid only
(or sid and wheezy, for some packages), sometimes from the usual
lenny/squeeze/sid (but not wheezy).

I have tried this on several different boxes, using fresh instances of Firefox
(Iceweasel) and Chrome, so I'm fairly certain it's not a cache issue.

For example, see:


A DNS lookup of packages.debian.org indicates that it is round-robin'd across
multiple servers, so perhaps one (or more?) of them is out of date?
