   Whilst probably a little bigger than what you're after, I've had
   some good success using the IEEE 828 (Softare Configuration Management
   Plan) standard/template. You can buy it from IEEE, or with a bit
   of luck, find a copy using Google.

   It outlines the sections for SCM planning that are important, which
   includes things like who has what responsibility, what each
   responsibility entails, how changes are controlled, what stuff
   the plan applies to (i.e. source, not compiled objects, etc).

   This template is usually where I outline branching policies, etc
   for a project. It fits quite well, and it's not too long.
   The templates I've produced usually around a couple of pages of
   plain text. They pad out a bit if you stick it in a Word document
   and use pretty fonts, but they're still pretty short.
