Why do emacs' info files not show up in info?

One good aspect of emacs always was the very good documentation.
However, after installing emacs20 from potato I discovered that "info
emacs" shows the man page and that there is not a way to get the info
files to show up when calling emacs' info mode.

I have noticed that most of the files in /usr/share/info have -info or
.info in there name, but emacs' files and some other packages also
don't - and they do not show in when calling info.

Is this a bug or am I missing something obvious?
