I getting a bit confused with this.

I've just changed al urls in one package I maintain to fit with this:

Please avoid using macros in the source URLs, prefer, for example,  

over {name}/%{version}/%{name}-%{version}.tar.bz2 

While using macros saves you as a package maintainer some time whenever
you update the package, QA will have to reconstruct the source URL
manually when the validity of the sources is checked. 

Please, Could anyone give us an athoritative answer on this ?

What should be used in urls, macros or hardcoded urls ?

Thaks in advance for your help.
