[Spacewalk-list] advice about organizing channels and repositories

I'm new to spacewalk, and I'm not sure how to organize the channels.  If, for example, you are running CentOS 6.7 without spacewalk, and you run "yum update", you will end up at CentOS 6.9.  If I add spacewalk, what is the best way to do that?  Do I make a centos67-base with a centos67-updates child, then a centos69-base with a centos69-update child, using the respective repositories (which I think are a vault.centos.org and http://mirror.centos.org/centos-6/6.9/os/x86_64/)? But then do I have to change which channel my server is subscribed to from the centos67 to centos69? Or should I make a centos6 channel with the child centos6-updates channel using the repositories for latest minor version (http://mirror.centos.org/centos-6/6/os/x86_64/ )? Is this advisable?

Is there documentation for best practices for setting up/organizing channels?

Thanks for your advice!
