This is what I think is happening, Your original repo has no filter, it still has a reference to the package. A clone operation does not regenerate the metadata and it reuses the parents metadata and that probably why you still see that via yum check-update.
The package is still blacklisted, and will not be served. Try installing the update and see if pulp is serving the package. You should get a 404. We could trigger a repo generation in case a clone operation uses filters. May be thats the solution to keep the
filesystem + db in sync with metadata in case of filters. The reason we dont currently generate metadata is to keep the clone as close to the parent as possible and also to make the clone fast(as reop generation can be expensive)

[Pulp-list] package filer question
I'm having an issue with a repo filter carrying over to the consumer. This repo is a clone of rh5-live, without the filter. I've verified the packages have been removed but they still show
up under yum check-update and are available via yumdownloader from a client bound to the rh5-prd repo. And the consumer shows the number of packages available higher than the number of packages in the rh5-prd repo. Any ideas?
pulp-admin repo content --id rh5-prd |gawk '/^mysql|^MySQL/'
pulp-admin filter create --id mysql-blacklist --type blacklist --description "mysql and MySQL package filter" -p "mysql-*" -p "MySQL-*"
pulp-admin filter info --id mysql-blacklist
Id : mysql-blacklist
Description : mysql and MySQL package filter
Type : blacklist
Package List : ['mysql-*', 'MySQL-*']
pulp-admin repo generate_metadata --id rh5-prd
from the consumer:
repo id repo name status
repos-pulp-pulp-5Server-x86_64 repos-pulp-pulp-5Server-x86_64 enabled: 17
rh5-prd rh5-prd enabled:
