A. This is not bug report but suggestion to improvement.

B. notifications of CommunityTech = notifications that CommunityTech doing in articles talk page: https://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/מיוחד:תרומות/Community_Tech_bot
The should Expanded to templates also and not just articles.

I think the proposal here is to see if the image that is tagged for deletion is being used in a template, and if so notify the template talk page. This makes a lot of sense to me. I do not think we should notify talk pages of articles that transclude the template, however, as this could amount to thousands of notifications for a single image.

MusikAnimal that is exactly what I meant. ''notify the template talk page''. And, yes not templates used in article, only the templates walk pages.
