This can be dealt with by creating a check list based on the policy manual 
(the first think to check in *any* package should be its compliance with the 
current policy).  Such a check list would be very useful even for developers, 
since people like me, that are not completely aware of the last policy 
discussions may very well miss some policy aspects when releasing a package.
