David's guide and the above guide are two different things and do not
serve the same role.  You can think of David's guide as a quick start,
hello-world version of how to create a good package.  The above listed
guide is more like the C Coding Style Reference Manual.  They simply
aren't intended for nor useful to the same audience.  And I happened to
find David's guide very well written and something that I think I would
point people new to rpm packaging to without problem.  I would expect
people new to rpm packaging to be overwhelmed and lost on the above
referenced guide.
