If you meant ‘editor of the article’ rather than ‘editoral user of EPrints’, you can use  ‘status_change’.
See this:
http://www.eprints.org/tech.php/14586.html for an old way of doing it,
and for the current way, use EP_TRIGGER_STATUS_CHANGE:

$c->add_dataset_trigger( "eprint", EP_TRIGGER_STATUS_CHANGE, sub{
    #passed to trigger are: eprint, old_status, new_status
    my( %o ) = @_;
    if( $o{old_status} eq "inbox" && $o{new_status} eq "buffer" ){
        #email someone related to $o{eprint} (user? creator? contact_email?)
    return EP_TRIGGER_OK;

Check out editorial alerts in the user profile of the editor(s).  Each editor can set their preference to receive daily, weekly or monthly notifications from the repository about new items in the editorial buffer.  It's not exactly what you're asking, but it's a preference that's in the control of each editor.
