Jason Tibbits response to my post pointed me in the right direction.
Here's my reply to him, which I neglected to copy to the list. The
problem was not in the coding of spec file but rather in how
fedora-review determines which spec file to use.

Thanks for the swift reply. Your request for the a link to the SRPM
pointed me in the right direction. Even though the -n option to
fedora-review specifies the name of the spec file in the current
directory, fedora-review was using a slate spec file in the input
srpm. So it seems to be a workflow issue, not a spec file syntax issue.

It's always a good idea to provide a link to your SRPM. Without it, all
I can say is that what you're doing _should_ work but that I'd have to
see the whole thing and build it myself to see exactly what's happening.
