+ * Returns: (transfer full): a new contact search channel, or %NULL
It's not a TpChannel either.

+ *  it when you're done with %g_list_free.
Is that properly linked? I'd say it should be "g_list_free()".

I think the long description in SECTION:contact-search should describe the
whole search process (which function use to start a search, how to get the
results and then how to start a new search).

Actually having a simple demo app in examples/client could be useful.

You add your new files to telepathy-glib/introspection.am so they'll be added
to gir.

The cancel, unref and create a new one option sounds saner to me. Can you
check the GCancellable implementation and/or test to see if that would work?

You're right sorry.

I meant doing:
if (tp_strdiff (chan_type, TP_IFACE_CHANNEL_TYPE_CONTACT_SEARCH))

Wouldn't that work?

Yeah you have to write a server side channel object to test your API.
See for example tests/lib/stream-tube-chan.c tested in tests/dbus/stream-tube.c
