That's not detailed at all. You should provide at least one example
here (or a direct link to one somewhere else on the wiki).

What's "autobumping" here and how is it better than rpmdev-bumpsec?

A diff with changes and some explanation would be more accessible
than having to dig inside a copr repo.

Why is a separate "rpm-changelog.txt" file with manually maintained
changelog better than current manually maintained changelog inside .spec?

How about using git commit log for changelog instead?

What about having one macro called %buildsys_packager instead of two?
You're always using them together, anyway. It'd be similar to the
existing %packager macro, too.
