if you tell me what needs changeing I can build this into the
release process ... I thought I have already been doing that with
the version number, but maybe it fails (I do not use rpms myself,
so I am living in a state of blissful ignorance).

he is, and he is sending me updates, but when I am reading that the
spec file does not work for some folks, I would assume that it
needs fixing ... or is my thinking too simple in this respect ?
