not quite:  I (as list maintainer) *had* been asked before it
happened -- and I had mentioned it as RFC  to the R core mailing list.

yes.  As I had told the person who initiated the R-help -> Gmane 
I think I'd very much want the  mailing list -> News gateway to
be  "ONE WAY" only {and this is an option with gmane}.
Because mail filtering has become quite a delicate (and somewhat
complex) procedure to maintain, I'd rather not have to deal with
mail coming from a news gateway as well, where mail headers may
(or may not) have been pre-processed by the forwarding software.

Yes, please feel free to go ahead!
