thanks - oddly, it didn't show when I tested it on Catalina, there must be a flag somewhere. As discussed before we cannot notarize any version of R before 4.0.0 so Catalina users have to either stick to 3.5.1 (since Apple has grand-fathered installers create before Catalina) or use the Ctrl+click way to install R 3.6.2.
