The default subscribe confirmation template lives in the database instead of templates/newsletter, so templates/newsletter/activation_email*.txt should be dropped (I was very confused by that)

Additionally, the {{ }} should be replaced by {{|default:"Sir/Madam" }}.

@adys Thanks (again) for the feedback!

For a next release, I'm considering moving the templates from the database entirely - and using the slugs of the newsletters instead. I found that, usually, our customers do not need to edit the templates and we had a lot of trouble not having the templates under version control in production environments.

Do you think that'd make sense?

An example template name could be templates/newsletter/my_newsletter_slug/activate.txt.

BTW. Thanks for reminding about the lingering files, and the name default makes sense as well.

I saw in another comment you mentioned dropping in-database subscription templates (it was a year ago though). I would agree it's the best way to go actually. There are separate apps that make loading templates from the database a breeze and they're compatible with everything that looks for a template.

Ref: #11

The old templates are (finally) removed. I will address the template refactor later under issue #11 and as such will close this one.
