Nautilus is the official file manager for the GNOME desktop. It allows
one to browse directories, preview files and launch applications
associated with them. It is also responsible for handling the icons on
the GNOME desktop. It works on local and remote filesystems.
Several icon themes and components for viewing different kinds of files
are available in separate packages.

* Revert to the previous serie, the new one is going to need more work
which is not going to be done this cycle (some issues/regressions are
being handled upstream in 3.20 but we can do that update with our GTK
version, also the new copy dialog is a bit much of a change and upstream
confirms it's creating problems that they try to address with more UI
changes) (lp: #1541954)
