nautilus-sendto is no longer maintained upstream, and has been deprecated
since 2019:

It was recently moved to <https://gitlab.gnome.org/Archive/nautilus-sendto>,
and the most recent release, 3.8.6, was three years ago. I think we should
consider removing it from Debian bullseye.

nautilus and evince have historically had explicit support for sending
files through nautilus-sendto, which I suspect will be removed upstream
at some point if it wasn't already.

The only hard dependency appears to be in meta-gnome3 (dak output below).
Additionally, evince, gajim and nautilus have Suggests on it.



smcv at coccia ~ % dak rm -R -n nautilus-sendto
Will remove the following packages from unstable:

nautilus-sendto |    3.8.6-3 | source, amd64, arm64, armel, armhf, i386, mips64el, mipsel, ppc64el, s390x
