Actually no. I asked about "cp vs. install _in %install_" So I was talking
about what can be done in .spec files for RPMs to be included into Fedora
Extras. I submitted a package to be reviewed and I wanted to do everything
as expected. So if the answer is "There is no guideline about what you 
should better use for this case", it is perfect for me.

Really? Bah, let's say it could be because english is not my mother tongue
and translation for what you told (especially your first sentence) in my
language sounds aggressive. But we are off-topic there. So for me we could
stop with this part of the discussion and focus on technical aspect.
