It is not secret, it is specific for a package or a class of packages.
It comes from the brain. This is especially true for the integration
issues that cannot all be in the guidelines. As a side note, if there
was only things that are in the guidelines and can be put on a check
list, packaging and reviewing packages would be very boring ;-)

A template won't help, but removing things from the guidelines or
arranging the guidelines to be easier to read.
