Hi!! We are super honoured to be considered a cloudron package!!
You already packaged our other product, Taiga, by the way.
@micmc Hi! this is Pablo, from the Taiga team. I very much enjoyed this debate, truly constructive.
Now, I'd like to make sure we're covering the same Taiga version here, since we made significant changes to the "un-branding" of those emails. Taiga 6 is much less heavy on that when it comes to... well, everything, but notification emails in particular.
Here is a real example of a change notification email. Taiga logo is subtle, content and call to action are king. I see very little Taiga branding here. Actually, it's the logo, which, well, it's quite nice and fair to have it and then "Taiga support" which is also convenient to have (some people do use it from these emails).
Now, was it like this in the past? Like in Taiga 5? No, it was much more cluttered, more branding, etc. So, again, my question is, which Taiga release are we talking about? If we're talking about Taiga 6 I'm afraid we don't see an issue with branding on emails. There's always room for improvement, but it would lean on "optimisation" aspects (for us). If it's Taiga 5 then we all agree but it's important to upgrade.
A separate point would be how easy is to modify email templates. Well, it's easy enough. People running their private instances do it all the time. It's a bit techie, you need to edit some files, but that's all. If you're using a service like Cloudron then I guess there are some limitations to what you can customise but it's not a Taiga constraint per se. We estimate between 100.000 and 500.000 Taiga instances around the world and this is clearly not an issue at all.
Here at Taiga we are busy with what we call "Taiga Next" (the screenshot I shared is a bit of a spoiler, actually) which is codename for "the next big release" and we are listening very closely to feedback such as this. We want to create the best agile project management experience for teams and it's tough just by going auto-pilot, it's great to have feedback!
