I think the issue here is the original message, which was
non-actionable. It basically read "we're going to shake things up, but
don't have specifics right now." That doesn't build confidence,
especially if there is some rough history here (I don't know the
backstory). It would have been best to post the list and patch at the
start, not defensively in response to criticism.

Also, you suddenly getting involved probably didn't help, because it
just gave the appearance that you guys were trying to double-team
