[Fedora-packaging] %doc and %attr problems

I'm trying to package globalplatform and gpshell but have some problems 
now with packaging some of the example scripts included. They are 
chmodded 755 instead of the wanted 644 so I tried to use this in the 
spec file:

%attr(0644,root,root)%doc README COPYING.LESSER *.txt

But this will result in the /usr/share/doc/gpshell-1.4.2/ also being 
chmodded 644 which will make rpmlint (correctly) complain:

gpshell.x86_64: E: non-standard-dir-perm /usr/share/doc/gpshell-1.4.2 0644

I tried using:

%attr(0644,root,root)%doc README LICENSE.LESSER *.txt

but that doesn't seem to help much.

I've already submitted this issue upstream and the maintainer said that 
he'll fix it for the next release in a few months...

How can I deal with it best for now?
