I would not name it "re-broadcasting" because of all the work they have
done to integrate the content into the wiki but basically that's it.

So i'm also +1 for politely asking.

By the way: RSS feeds are for read, not for republish the content
without permission. I granted Devrim the right to publish parts of my
blog on planetpg, but i can't remember that i or most of the other
planet posters did include the permission for other usage.
