I don't think there is a recognized standard one.  I would use whatever 
format your journal requires for citing any web page, e.g. something like

Lewin-Koh, Nicholas (2013).  CRAN Task View: Graphic Displays & Dynamic 
Graphics & Graphic Devices & Visualization.
Web page with URL <http://cran.r-project.org/web/views/Bayesian.html>,
