Con No Kanban metrics
Taiga is said to support Kanban but it does not generate any of the usual Kanban metrics (cycle time, lead time) or graph (Cumulated Flow Diagram).
Con Can be overwhelming at first
Taiga presents users with a lot of information and functionality right from the beginning with little guidance. Figuring how stuff works might take a bit.
Con Too much functionality for small projects
While it's possible to disable any unwanted features (modules), the amount of functionality that's present might be more than a small, short-term project needs.
Con Command line interface
A command line interface is a arguably overly verbose, consequently tedious, way to interact with a To Do list.
