It's sort of automatic. The archive-admin-of-the-day has to start a
script to trigger the autosync. As archive admins are also normal
(core-)developers it might happen that archive work is a little bit
neglected sometimes when more important work is pending (such as
preparing/fixing packages for an alpha release and such).
Thinking about the alpha 2 release (announced for today) it might even
be that the autosync wasn't done on purpose to not break the alpha 2
