Yes AFAIK the portsnap servers get the data from git nowadays. If I run  
"portsnap fetch" I get a snapshot of today so it seems to work fine.

See "man portsnap":

EXAMPLES
      Fetch the snapshots and create the ports(7) tree under /usr/ports:
            portsnap fetch extract

      Update the ports tree:
            portsnap fetch update

Regards,
Ronald.
