How long does it take for a port to become a pkg?

Hello there everybody!
Today I thought I'd give the Lumina desktop a spin on my laptop. That's
not the best place for any self-compiling orgies, so I decided to
install it as a binary (package)...
root at mobilix:~ # pkg search lumina
lumina-1.1.0.p1,2 Lumina Desktop Environment
lumina-i18n-1.0.0 Lumina desktop environment localization files
This surprised me because the current v1.2 has been out since the
beginning of January. So I decided to look in the ports and sure
enough, v1.2 has been there for six weeks now:
Is this a thing with the mirror that the pkg tool is choosing or are
the packages actually not updated that often? I actually thought this
was an automated process that ran every night - or at least on a
regular basis with shorter intervals than 6 weeks.
Or am I missing something here?
