 I just wanted to give update on progress here.

 I've updated integration code so it can be used with pinax-notifications app. 
There's pull request for 2.7.x branch waiting for review [1]. I started with 
interchangeable notification name, but after some time I've noticed that the 
code won't work with old notifications because of template paths changes. I've 
left app name as var, because it seems to be still useful (var misnaming is 
easier to notice in code than raw string).

 Account app (geonode-user-account) upgrade is more complicated. From what I 
noticed by diffing code, the main difference is invitations mechanism and 
registration moderation. I've ported invitations functionality from geonode-
user-accounts to django-user-accounts app [2].

 Moderation can be decoupled with signals [3], but response object must be 
returned from view. I'll make this as an optional feature in user-account app 
in separate issue/pull request.

 If you know any other differences between those apps, let me know.
 Besides that, I think we need some data migration script that would copy 
notifications settings from geonode-notifications-based installations. Similar 
thing applies to user-account app.
