Not automatically, no. You can check


from time to time, assuming someone reassigns things to that package
("someone" usually does). Any subsequent correspondence on those reports
goes to both addresses automatically. If people file bugs with the right
package, this will happen from the start, but you cannot rely on people
to do that, else you could just ask them to send them to your preferred
address from the start.

The right solution to this would seem to be more frequent syncing
between the two repositories. Since there is a daily (?) update of the
org version in GNU ELPA, I sometimes wonder if the months-out-of-date
version in Emacs core is still useful. Looks like it is 7 months behind
at present?
