I just had a quick view at the techdoc. Yes, it's old and incomplete 
(only file and capability rules are listed). But I'm quite sure lots of 
things (probably everything about file and capability rules) are still 

That's the good thing about AppArmor - it's quite stable (besides added 
features) so that something you learned 10 years ago is still valid ;-)

that might be part of the tarball build process ;-)
