On a separate unrelated note, please do not append "a" to the RPM Version field for alphas. As far as RPM is concerned "9.5.0a5" > "9.5.0" which means you have to keep changing the epoch [31! wow :-(] The correct way is to have a 0.a. or similar in the Release field.

This is documented in the packaging guidelines: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines#PreReleasePackages
