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 
valid.

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 ;-)

I vote for keeping techdoc and creating the PDF at tarball creation, so

apparmor-build_docs_w_tarball.patch
Acked-by: Christian Boltz <appar...@cboltz.de>

I didn't test your patch, so please create a test tarball to make sure 
the PDF really gets packaged (and isn't the victim of some "make clean" 
that might be part of the tarball build process ;-)

Christian Boltz
