= Proposed Self Contained Change: Nautilus Improvements =

Change owner(s): Carlos Soriano <csoriano at redhat.com> 

Tie up some of the loose ends that were leftover after the nautilus design 
refresh work that has happened a while ago. 

== Detailed Description ==
The nautilus code base will be cleaned up by porting it from the deprecated 
GtkAction APIs to GAction. As part of this, the view, gear and app menus will 
be updated to match the current designs. In addition, several long-standing 
annoyances will be addressed, such as the problematic floating statusbar, and 
the keyboard shortcut for deleting files. 

== Scope ==
* Proposal owners:
** Get the [1] branch reviewed and merged (in progress)
** Write a patch to change from Ctrl-Delete to Delete with an undo notification 
(bug [2])
** Implement a different solution for the floating statusbar

* Other developers: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
* Release engineering: N/A (not a System Wide Change)  
* Policies and guidelines: N/A (not a System Wide Change)

== Contingency Plan ==
N/A (not a System Wide Change)
