Bug Description

Binary package hint: shotwell

According to Gnome HIG :
http://library.gnome.org/devel/hig-book/stable/menus-standard.html.en#the-file-menu

"If your application does not operate on documents, name this item for the type of object it displays. For example, many games should have a Game instead of a File menu. However, place the Quit menu item last on this menu nonetheless."

The "Photos" and "File" menu need to be merged and the edit functions in "Photos" menu moved to the "Edit" Menu.

Note that the new upstream ticket address is http://redmine.yorba.org/issues/2180. The above links either redirect or are broken because Launchpad doesn't support Redmine.
