       dh_apparmor - reload AppArmor profile and create local include


       dh_apparmor [--manifest=manifestfile] --profile-name=profilename


       dh_apparmor is a debhelper program that will create/remove the
       /etc/apparmor.d/local/<profilename> include file in maintainer scripts. It also reloads
       the specified AppArmor profile in postinst using:

           apparmor_parser -r -W -T /etc/apparmor.d/<profilename>

       By using '-W -T' we ensure that any abstraction updates are also pulled in.


           Specify the profile name. Eg:

           dh_apparmor dh_apparmor -p foo

           Optionally specify a manifest file. When specified, a profile is generated by calling
           aa-easyprof(8) with the specified manifest file and putting the resulting profile in
           debian/apparmor/<profilename>. Eg, if there is a valid manifest in
           debian/manifest.json, then the following command will create debian/apparmor/
           for the 'bar' package (you will need to clean this up via override_dh_clean or

           dh_apparmor --manifest=manifest.json -p bar

           Because not all build enviroments support the apparmor kernel interface,
           aa-easyprof(8) is called with the --no-verify option. Use of this option requires that
           apparmor-easyprof is installed.


       When using modern dh packaging techniques, dh_apparmor can be added to the
       override_dh_install section of the rules file. Note that for packages that have multiple
       binary packages, you will want to pass '-p<package name>' to dh_apparmor, otherwise
       dh_apparmor will add AppArmor reload commands for all packages rather than just the one
       that ships the profile.

       In addition, you will have to install the profile itself in /etc/apparmor.d.  Eg, in the
       above manifest file example if you are using dh_install you would add to

           debian/apparmor/ etc/apparmor.d


       debhelper(7) aa-easyprof(8)

       This program is a part of debhelper.
