I propose this paragraph in elpa/README under the "** Notes specific to
=elpa.gnu.org=" node:

*** Release and devel archives
elpa.gnu.org serves the gnu and nongnu package collections (roughly,
gnu requires FSF copyright assign, nongnu doesn't, but these terms are
not fully defined here).

In addition, elpa.gnu.org serves release and devel versions of each
package. The release version is defined by a change in the =Version:=
header of a package; the devel version is the latest commit.

The release version is accessed at:

gnu    - https://elpa.gnu.org/packages/
nongnu - https://elpa.nongnu.org/nongnu/

The devel version is accessed at:

gnu    - https://elpa.gnu.org/devel
nongnu - 

What is the URL for nongnu devel (I could not find it via a web search)?
