Although, there was a bz requesting that rarian own that folder. I 
thought I might be missing some knowledge about whether a help file for 
an app could/should live there.

I hoped there would be, but alas, the source code needed to be modified.

I placed the file in %{buildroot}%{_datadir}/%{name}.

I take it from Ralf's answer, that this is an acceptable/suitable place 
to put it ?

AIUI, it couldn't go in %doc dir ?
And should the folder include the version (or does it that only apply to 
%doc location ?).

Thanks, DaveT.
