I only see consistent information on that page.

And it should be like that within few hours after a change. Syncing the 
logs from at least 4 different sources and regenerating the overview 
page has to happen sometime and you can always visit between two updates 
so you may have seen an inconsistency that is no longer there.

It does, that's what the "Version" column contains. And the R version is 
also reported in the first column. You see check fro R-devel, R-release 
and R-oldrelease.
