Hello all,

anything holding back an update of the default snippets we
propose for Fedora until a more permanent solution in
rpm/tools is available?

Hrm, looks like an oversight in the guidelines... should probably wrap the
call in something like:
1.  if [ -x /usr/bin/gtk-update-icon-cache ]; then ...
2. redirect output (using something like >& /dev/null 
(I use the latter mostly).
