Bug Description

nautilus-python package in Ubuntu is very old - v 1.1 released 7 years ago (2011), still depending on python2.7

Please update packages to latest upstream version - 1.2.x, this supports building with Python 3 and has other improvements:

1.2.2: - Fixed bug #792427, Fix folder string comparison to prevent duplicate extension loading

1.2.1: - Fixed bug #792348, Fix syntax error when building docs using python3

    - Added capability to compile with python 3 support using PYTHON environment variable
    - Fix #781232, Improve extension path loading semantics to follow XDG recommendations
    - Fix #791208, require Nautilus 3.0 before importing extensions to prevent warnings
    - Switch to using gtkdoc mkhtml for generating devhelp2 documentation

See https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/nautilus-python/blob/master/NEWS

syslog is logging that error which seems related to:
org.gnome.Nautilus[1695]: ** (nautilus:8309): CRITICAL **: nautilus_menu_provider_get_background_items: assertion 'NAUTILUS_IS_MENU_PROVIDER (provider)' failed

related reopened report: bug #1429535



nautilus-python 1.2.2-1 doesn't use python3 and neither 1.1-6 or 1.2.2-1 build the docs.

Is this likely to be done for 18.04? It looks like the upstream project supports building with Python 3 with version 1.2.
