AppArmor for Ubuntu

Last summer I did an effort to build packages of AppArmor (project page) to Ubuntu. Unfortunately, I needed at that time patch and recompile the kernel. That took a lot of work and time. I did not manage to spend all that work to maintain the packages. A few days ago I got a mail from Crispin Cowan that Kees Cook had told him that patching the kernel is not necessary any more.

Yesterday and today I have spent some time to refresh my packages. The last snapshot of AppArmor from October last year did not compile in Feisty. Instead I took the last subversion revision. The status looks not to good for that either, some of the Perl scripts refers to an undefined variable. I hope I will get some help from the AppArmor guys.
