Comment 1 Andy Mender 2020-09-20 10:58:09 UTC
> Version:        0.6
> Release:        0.b%{?dist}

I might be wrong here, but I think the "0.b" bit should be a part of the version, so the Version field should read:
> Version:        0.6b0

That way you can do away with the extra global definition: %global upstream_version 0.6b0

The Release should be arithmetically incremental and is something internal to Fedora so:
> Release:        1%{?dist}

This affects the %changelog entry as well, of course.

However, the Packaging Guidelines are not very strict about this:

> License:        GPLv2+

Upstream explicitly mentions it's GPLv3:
