I also remember it being mentioned, that there is some
tools distributed with GNU Guix, that is supposed to help with that.

If you use Emacs and Magit you can use the “update” or “add” snippets with Yasnippet, i.e. within the commit message window opened by magit just type “add” and hit TAB to expand the snippet.

You can also use etc/committer.scm, which is part of the source checkout. It was written to help with mass-upgrades of CRAN packages; it will not do the right thing in all cases. Notably, it has some problems separating consecutive package additions.
