The file as contained in the arch package from the extra repo has deprecation messages in the form

deprecated="version. reason">

However all the other .gir files from other packages, as well as the same file in Fedora 22, and the same file when I build libnotify on my system, have deprecation messages in this form:

<doc-deprecated xml:space="preserve">reason</doc-deprecated>

This breaks haskell-gi and potentially other gobject-introspection binding generators.
I suspect that whatever system this package was built on has a different version of gobject-introspection, which is used to generate the .gir files.

libnotify version: 0.7.6-1
gobject-introspection version: 1.46.0-1
This task depends upon
