It is a Bioconductor concept. It conflates two ideas -- versions of packages for the development version of R, and development versions of packages (possibly for current R). Many package authors do not make public their development work, but some can be found on the R-packages SVN repository and on the Rforges.

Most CRAN packages run under the R-devel version of R. For those that do not and need incompatible changes have versions in, e.g., 2.8.0/Other (currently empty).

As far as I am aware, all CRAN packages that fail under R-devel (see the on-line 'daily' checks) are failing because of stricter error checking which has revealed bugs present also under 2.7.x.
