[Fedora-packaging] app wants runtime help file in /usr/share/help

Hi, an app I maintain recently gained a help menu. It expects to find 
the single help.html file in /usr/share/help
make install helpdir=%{buildroot}%{_datadir}/help

This folder seems to be owned by rarian, and hence doesn't seem to make 
sense as location to place this help file.

Is the best approach to patch the src so that it expects to find the 
help file in a better location ?
What would that location be ?

ie. maybe:
make install helpdir=%{buildroot}%{_datadir}/%{name}
, and then adjust src to look there ?

Cheers, David Timms
