funtoo repo appears behind gento repo


I am wondering could cause this.   I want to install postgresql-9.6.6 via portage.  The highest ebuild version in my /usr/portage/dev-db/postgresql/9.6.3-r2, however when I look on the Gentoo packages page I see postgresql-9.6.6 is stable and available.  I have done emerge --sync bring my tree up to date.   I am wondering if I am pointing at the wrong repo's or something else is amiss with my portage configuration.

contents of my repos.conf/gentoo file:

main-repo = gentoo

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

Follow directions here to install/use meta-repo.

Funtoo eliminated stable.

Funtoo users running stable have to upgrade to current.

I had one system running stable that I upgraded to current while still running ports-2012 before switching to meta-repo.

Funtoo in many cases upgrades package versions at a slower rate than gentoo.

On synced meta-repo dev-db/postgresql-10.0-r1

funtoo rj # emerge -av  postgresql

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Thanks,  just did that today and things are working much better!  One more question,  are the ebuilds/packages still kept in /usr/portage or did that move?  I like just doing an 'ls' in the portage tree to see what's out there, will that still work?
