There's no "secret" version of evolution (well, not as far as I know).
Everything "bleeding edge" and "new" is happening in cvs HEAD. 

You can find the pending patching in the evolution-patches mailinglist.

What version is being used by the developers is, of course, up to the
developer themselves. If they decide to pre-patch their checkout with a
specific patch (that isn't approved), then that's their own decision. I
don't think a lot developers do that (except the module maintainer of
the affected module) because once approved, it will generate a huge
conflict in their checkout.

Most of them (patches in evo-patches) who've in fact been approved (and
are committed to HEAD) have a reply where a module-maintainer approved
the differences.

So to get the most insanely unstable and bleeding edge stuff: just get
the version in cvs HEAD. It will be unstable enough for all developers
of this tiny world. If you're a developer, I assure you you'll like
it :-).
