Could you point to examples of such emails?

We currently have a user-mailing list and a bug tracker to
report issues and the last (two) packaging issues were fixed
Are you sure we can improve?
Why should people who do not want to report issues now do
that on a new mailing list?

I don't understand that at all:
We do not backport new features currently and assuming
that no additional manpower appears, I hope we do not
Regression fixes are currently backported after they are
tested, what exactly do you want to change?
