Maybe this is a quesiton which should be directed to Ubuntu, maybe there
is a rule someplace, that I have not found so far.

When using Introspect e.g. on org.freedesktop.Notifications in a session
connection, the data that gets returned does not possess any interface
descriptions, but rather:

    <!DOCTYPE node PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD D-BUS Object Introspection 1.0//EN"
      <node name="org"/>

Googling a little bit yields e.g.
which is from 2008. So there are the introspect xml files, just not on
the Ubuntu installation?

Or are there other reasons, that can explain this observation?


Maybe another question related to introspection xml-files: are the
org.freedesktop-DBUS-introspection files available via the web? If so,
where? If not, where can one retrieve those introspection files to all
of the org.freedesktop-DBUS services?
