the -0 is epoch 0... which would be the same...

I'm currently carrying out tests against my spacewalk - I suggest that
you keep an eye on the spacewalk mailing lists....

One thing to check is the revision of spacewalk (1.4 is current), that
the channel is set to sha256 and not sha1 for package hashing and if
you have SL6 channels make sure that SW isn't getting confused with
the identical NVREA...
