I haven't tested the software yet but just looking the spec file, I can
spot some issues with the packaging:


Version should be upstream version (ie) 0.99.7 and Release should be
just 1 since it indicates your first build of the package.

Source0 should be a link to the upstream source. Reviewers need to know
the software is what you claim it is.

GCC needn't be specified as a BuildRequires


Description shouldn't be over 80 characters in a single line. Run
rpmlint on the spec file

You can drop the -n argument to setup if you give the version number
correctly as indicated above.

Changelog should be at the bottom and follow


You cannot simply own everything under /usr/bin and /usr/lib but only
own files that is actually part of the package. RPM would then remove
them during uninstallation.

You have specified %changelog twice.
