FHS says in the first sentence:
»/opt is reserved for the installation of add-on application software
Installation in /opt is unusual in Fedora, but permitted as far as I
know. Is SCC an »add-on software«? I recognize generic rpm packages as
such, like the Google, Skype, or Adobe ones. In my mind, I package which
will be shipped with Fedora itself should follow the usual standard. The
hierarchy in the generic package is somewhat odd anyway: /opt/scc/bin,
/etc/opt/scc and /var/opt/scc/. There's no common installation prefix,
though. If you could figure out a way to make it work with /usr/bin,
/etc/scc and /var/scc, it would become more transparent.
