The Summary is good, but the %description is a bit lacking: after reading it, I still don't know *what* this package does... I think you should spell it out in simple words.

No need to define %sum: just write the first Summary in full, and then you can refer to that text as %summary.

License tag needs a specific version for GPL. It needs to be one of the "short names" in

.egg-info doesn't need to be removed [].

It doesn't work with python3? It would be nicer to package it as a Python3 application if possible.

I think that systemd-devel is probably not required. It is only used to compile C programs linked with the systemd libs.

python-fmn-sse.noarch: W: incoherent-version-in-changelog 0.1 ['0.1.0-1.fc24', '0.1.0-1']
python-fmn-sse.noarch: W: summary-ended-with-dot C FMN.SSE allows fedora users to view their fedmsg feed in realtime.

About the service file: the service most likely shouldn't run as root. Running a network-facing web server with full privileges is crazy. You should add a dedicated user (fmn-sse or similar) in %pre.


OK, after reading the spec and looking at the files, the biggest issues are:
- can you provide a better overview in %description what the intent of this package is, this will make further review easier.
- there needs to be some instructions how to enable the service. In particular I have no idea what the instance argument to the template should be.
- the service should run with reduced privileges.
