portage metadata cache empty

Question

I recently noticed that eix wasn't returning correct results; I'm assuming this is the issue:

# eix-sync
 * Running emerge --sync
>>> Syncing repository 'gentoo' into '/usr/portage'...
/usr/bin/git pull
Already up-to-date.
=== Sync completed for gentoo

i.e., the EMPTY message above. My /etc/portage/repos.conf/gentoo file is

[DEFAULT]
main-repo = gentoo

[gentoo]
location = /usr/portage
sync-type = git
sync-uri = git://github.com/funtoo/ports-2012.git
auto-sync = yes

and /etc/make.conf is almost empty:

MAKEOPTS="-j7"
VIDEO_CARDS="nouveau"
INPUT_DEVICES="evdev"
USE="apache2 mysql int64 -bluetooth"

Is this just a temporary problem -- should I just wait for an update?
