Question Shroud "stiffness"

Need some help with a definition so to speak. The O' Day manual for my 25 says that the upper shrouds should be "taught" and the lower shrouds should be "a bit slack". OK, so what is "taught" and what is "a bit slack"? Should I just get a tension gauge and tighten to a certain value? If so, what value?

Rhetorical question forthcoming.... Would it have been that difficult for them to give an actual tension number?
