For requests Contracts/ContractItems/ContractBidscurrentTime always equals to cachedUntil.
I think cache time for ContractItems request can be very very long, because contracts impossible to change.
Contracts and ContractBids can be cached for several hours.

Best regards,

This is actually an API bug which I have reported pre Incarna 1.1 patch but had no reply from CCP despite my several posts in forum.

This API behavior is commonly seen in API error returned info.

Its a bug, but I would like to see a 15 min timer on Contracts and Bids as well as walletJournal, MemberTracking, and StarbaseDetail. Probably a few others that would be nice to be lower as well.
