* Updated to use:
Source0:
http://www.shakthimaan.com/downloads/glv/presentation/%{name}-%{version}.tar.bz2

* Updated setup to also use:
%prep
%setup -qn %{name}

* Install now includes only fedora-packager.

I saw the following and hence didn't give it in the example:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Exceptions_2

I have now mentioned the URL.

Updated. Outputs as well.

Updated.

Added another slide for macros, and have illustrated this example.
Some fixes in macro definitions as well. Use version 1.2.

I believe this should be sufficient to get started with, and
subsequent use-cases for various packaging guidelines can be done in a
hands-on workshop with support from wiki documentation, discussion on
mailing lists, and IRC.

Thanks a lot for the valuable feedback.
