Package: nextcloud-desktop
Version: 2.5.3-1
Severity: normal

Currently users of Nextcloud are missing a convenient way to see the
status of synchronization or access settings. libcloudproviders is the
'proper' way to do that in GNOME. When it is used, there is no longer
any need for the user to rely on the (IME unreliable) Topicons or
appindicator GNOME Shell extensions.

I believe it also provides some measure of Nautilus integration--synced
folders automatically appear in the side bar, the syncrhonization status
of files is displayed, and files can be shared and so on directly from
Nautilus. This at least is possible today with the nautilus-nextcloud
package, but libcloudproviders does it in a provider-independent way.
