This is a great list.  My organization, Abayima, would be happy to help
maintain it in a public forum: either on a wiki, or gDoc, or a text
document housed in a Git repo, or something else entirely.

It seems like there're three conversations the list is having. One
regarding what this checklist should be, what tools such a list might
recommend, and another regarding how best to relate the information to
users (who may or may not be technical).
