No, they are. In fact this is a key design feature, and the same reason
why sometimes certain packages do not appear on the FTP site (if they
did appear they would be necessarily *out* of sync). Similarly they are
always built against recent versions of -STABLE, by design.
Glad to hear your experience was generally positive though.
