Wrong user group in notify.conf

Bug Description

use_group in /etc/apparmor/notify.conf is set to "admin" by default but it should be set to "sudo"

In Ubuntu Precise 12.04 the admin users are added to the "sudo" group in /etc/group. The "admin" group no longer exists if you do a fresh install so notifications are not displayed. After setting use_group="sudo" everything works fine.

OS: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Apparmor-notify: 2.7.102-0ubuntu3

  [ Jamie Strandboge ]
  * debian/lib/apparmor/functions: properly calculate number of profiles in
    /var/lib/apparmor/profiles (LP: #1295816)
  * autostart aa-notify via /etc/xdg/autostart instead of /etc/X11/Xsession.d
    (LP: #1288241)
    - remove debian/notify/90apparmor-notify
    - add debian/notify/apparmor-notify.desktop
    - debian/apparmor-notify.install: adjust for the above
    - add debian/apparmor-notify.maintscript to remove 90apparmor-notify
  * debian/notify/notify.conf: use_group should be set to "sudo" instead of
    "admin" (LP: #1009666)

  [ Tyler Hicks ]
  * debian/patches/initialize-mount-flags.patch: Initialize the variables
    containing mount rule flags to zero. Otherwise, the parser may set
    unexpected bits in the mount flags field for rules that do not specify
    mount flags. The uninitialized mount flag variables may have caused
    unexpected AppArmor denials during mount mediation. (LP: #1296459)
  * debian/patches/fix-typo-in-dbus_write.patch: Fix a bug in the
    apparmor/aa.py module that caused the utilities in the apparmor-utils
    package to write out network rules instead of dbus rules
  * debian/patches/limited-mount-rule-support.patch: Fix a bug in the
    apparmor/aa.py module that caused the utilities in the apparmor-utils
    package to traceback when encountering a mount rule (LP: #1294825)
  * debian/patches/bare-capability-rule-support.patch: Fix a bug in the
    apparmor/aa.py module that caused the utilities in the apparmor-utils
    package to traceback when encountering a bare capability rule
    (LP: #1294819)
  * debian/patches/check-config-for-sysctl.patch,
    debian/patches/increase-swap-size.patch: Fix bugs in the regression test
    suite that caused errors when running on ppc64el
  * debian/patches/test-v6-policy.patch,
    debian/patches/test-mount-mediation.patch: Improve the regression tests
    by increasing the mount rule test coverage
