I'm wondering whether this is a well-defined question. The could have been 
several versions of a package released over the course of any given interval 
during which any one version (major or minor variants) of R might have been 
"current". You should ascertain the dimensions of the problem by first viewing 
three webpages:

1) https://cran.r-project.org/src/base/     # versions of R (source)
2) https://cran.r-project.org/web/checks/check_summary_by_package.html  
#(current packages by fork of R)
3) https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive   # Package Archive
