Right. This is what I was kinda referring as a separate list for notification
in my OP (Hadoop keep separate *-issues@ list for every component). However,
the mixed approached might be even better as it allows to avoid any update
traffic unless a person is specifically watching an issue.

To summarize (under assumption that *-issues@ list is being created)
  - JIRA create notifications are to go to bigtop-dev@ and bigtop-issues@ lists
  - following updates to go only to bigtop-issues@ list
