I don't believe so.

If all that is desired is a list of the standard packages that
can be obtained with

Last[StringSplit[#, $PathnameSeparator]] & /@
  FileNames["*",
   ToFileName[{$InstallationDirectory, "AddOns", "Packages"}]]

and

Last[StringSplit[#, $PathnameSeparator]] & /@
  FileNames["*m",
   ToFileName[{$InstallationDirectory, "AddOns",
"LegacyPackages"}], 2]

for the legacy packages.

Of course, this provides no link to the documentation for these packages.

To get to the documentation for the standard packages, the best
thing I seen so far is the palette Selwyn Hollis created and
made available at:
