Probably not.  :-)

No.  Currently this isn't supported in Gerrit.  It would be a fairly
trivial code change, and actually if we wanted that to be policy we
could just configure Gerrit to always send the initial changeset
emails to egit-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx.  Gerrit has per-user settings,
we could configure the "mailing list user" to receive only initial
changeset emails for both egit and jgit projects.

s/git expert/git or Gerrit expert/ since some of this is Gerrit
specific.  But yes, I'm certain we could explain this a bit better
in the wiki.
