You did read right, those are different methods of getting the same result. Some people like to cut the mount off, cut it down, then re-weld it back on in the new position. This gives a much cleaner, stock appearance, but can be difficult if you don't know how to weld really good. If you think about the safety aspect of what this entails, you better make sure you get it right!
Or, you can simply redrill the holes in the stock mount based on the template from David's page. When you go that route, you must trim some off the top of each corner of the mount so the upper control arm will fit. It's not bad though and you can make it look pretty good. This is a much simplier method and works just as good, just doesn't look as good.
It really just depends on you...
