While easily remedied via right-click + open, out-of-the-box installer gives the Apple daft (and technically incorrect since Apple could most certainly check it for malicious software):

    “R-3.6.2.pkg” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.


Here's what spctl returns:

    $ spctl -a -vv -t install R-3.6.2.pkg
    R-3.6.2.pkg: rejected
    source=Unnotarized Developer ID
    origin=Developer ID Installer: Simon Urbanek (VZLD955F6P)

NOTE: R & R.app work fine once installed.

Not sure if this is going to cause consternation in "corporate" environments.
