Bug#637331: transition: nautilus
as next step of getting GNOME 3 into unstable, we'd like to request a
slot to start the nautilus 3 transition
The API of libnautilus-extension hasn't changed with version 3.0, but it
uses GTK 3 now which changes its ABI and a process can't be using GTK 2
and GTK 3 at the same time, as this will lead to an application abort .
As a result, we decided to change the binary package name to
Packages which are updated to libnautilus-extension 3.0 need to also be
updated to GTK 3 (GNOME 3).
I've filed corresponding bug reports for the affected packages:
Those bugs are also user-tagged . Some of those packages are already
updated in experimental. I will mark those bug reports accordingly.
- gnome-user-share uses libgnome-bluetooth 3.0, which would mean
entangling those two transition, so I'd suggest temporarily disabling
bluetooth support in gnome-user-share.
- totem 3.0 (from exp) requires a newer libgdata (involving a soname
bump). We probably need to do this transition first. I'll file a
separate bug for that.
- Updating nautilus-sendto to 3.0 (available in exp) will break the
plugins shipped by empathy and gnome-bluetooth:
I'd prefer to temporarily break those plugins in nautilus-sendto to
not entangle this transition with an empathy 3.0 or gnome-bluetooth
3.0 update, but some of the pkg-gnome team would like to at least
update empathy. So input from the release team on this matter would be
I've also started collecting notes about this transition at .
