Hi Felipe,

>>> + # install apparmor profile
>>> + cp debian/apparmor/usr.bin.pulseaudio
>>> debian/pulseaudio/etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.pulseaudio
>>> This would install the file with whatever umask is currently set.
>> Thanks for making this clear.
>> Yes. root:root 644 is correct.
> Thanks. I have changed this to install -m 644 instead of cp.

The apparmor profile itself could indeed be part of the upstream package.

Currently, these profiles are worked on collectively by people from
Ubuntu, Debian/Tails and OpenSuSe and we use a shared Git repository
between our three distributions.

For torbrowser-launcher we upstreamed the profile for example, also
because upstream is very responsive about patches. But I have no other
examples in mind where this would be the case.

Would you care to ask upstream if they'd like to include it?
