Sorry about this, I had no idea this change would affect Apparmor. This was a 
bugfix for MacOS where the socket path was simply too long.

At the same time, you cannot assume all maintainers know about all such 3rd 
party software and know what changes might or might not affect it.  Maybe if 
the Apparmor config file for Akonadi was in the Akonadi repo and I knew about 
it, it would hit a bell in my head while doing the codereview for this change. 
But this way, even if I knew Apparmor would be affected by this change, I have 
no clue where to look for...whatever I have to look for in order to do or ask 
for the adjustments.

IMO since this is something you do in your packaging and is outside of 
upstream control, it's something you should check before pushing the package 
to your users, not blaming upstream for breaking your distro "patches".
