"Already built and uploaded" means uploaded to the private server. From there, it still needs to rsync to the public server before you can see it. Normally, rsyncs happen every half hour, however one rsync must complete before the next begins. When huge ports are updated, this results in huge files needing to be rsynced, which can take hours, which delays other changes from being seen publicly. In this case, the huge ports in question were llvm-devel/clang-devel/lldb-devel. The situation will improve when the internet connection at the private server is upgraded. I was expecting to hear back from the internet service provider about that today; I will contact them again Monday.
