Thanks for your support !

I will create a team on GitLab.  How about "r-packages-team" ?
Hopefully, the use of plural clarifies that the team is not about
the r-base package.  Also, each team has a description and I will
mention there that r-base is out of scope.  (Although there may
eventually be a r-base-backports repository there).

Have a nice Sunday,
