Subject: apparmor: Add /etc/mdns.allow to abstractions/mdns
Date: Sat, 27 Apr 2019 10:04:39 -0500

Package: apparmor
Version: 2.13.2-10
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
   Executables protected by apparmor cannot reach MDNS suffixes declared in
   /etc/mdns.allow, and probed by libnss-mdns.

   Please see /usr/share/doc/libnss-mdns/ in package libnss-mdns.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
   Attempt to use, e.g., ntpd to connect to an MNDS domain that isn't .local.

   * What was the outcome of this action?
   Failure, and a DENIED entry in the kernel to /etc/mdns.allow

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
   access to the host on the non-.local MDNS domain.

   Proposed fix: add /etc/mnds.allow to abstractions/mnds.
   This fix works for me.
