For virt-manager/libvirt, for maintenance reasons I like to have the git
spec match what we ship in Fedora, minus any patches and the changelog.
Adding this unconditionally to spec file makes syncing spec changes
between upstream git and Fedora/RHEL a bit harder because you will ave
to strip out the build_timestamp setup.

Maybe add a 'make rpm' target that passes in the build_timestamp value
from rpmbuild? Then you can define it in the spec file in such a way
that you don't need to make more manual edits when syncing with distros.
Does that fit your usecase?
