     I have been known to be verbose at times, but here are my thought
about Step 1 of the Workflow list:

1.) The workflow begins with creating a new document or revising and 
    existing document.
    a.) Create a new document using the latest chapter template 
        (currently Also study and apply 
        the principles of Producing-LO-userguides.odt. Both of these 
        documents will guide you as you write your new document.
        i.) Naming convention for new documents: CCDDDBB-Name where CC 
            is the book initials, DD is the LibreOffice version (33 is 
            version 3.3 and 34 is version 3.4), and BB is the chapter 
            number (two digits). For directions on formating the name  
            of the document, see page 20 of Producing-LO- 
            userguides.odt. For example, WG33-WorkingWithText.odt is 
            chapter 3 of the Writer Guide for LibreOffice version 3.3.x.
               Book initials (CC):
                   GS = Getting Started 
                   WG = Writer Guide 
                   CG = Calc Guide 
                   DG = Draw Guide 
                   IG = Impress Guide 
                   BG = Base Guide 
                   MG = Math Guide
    b.) Existing documents already have a template. When editing one,  
        you might need to update the template (first thing to check). 
        Then make sure you have "change tracking" on (Edit > Changes > 
        Record). Then review the document making changes as you go.
    c.) Uploading drafts to the appropriate draft folder: 
        i.)   If you have not already done so, request your user name 
              and password for the Alfresco web site from the document 
              team mailing list. ( 
        ii.)  Then sign into the Alfresco web site. The path to the 
              draft folder to which you should upload your draft: 
              Repository (at the top) > English (left side) > 
              Documentation > (appropriate folder for your document) > 
        iii.) Click the Upload button (at the top) and a pop-up window 
              appears. Click the icon containing a sheet of paper and a 
              magnifying glass to browse to your draft file on you 
              computer. Click the “Upload file(s)” button to begin the 
              uploading. (uploading process is shown over the name of 
              your file.) When the uploading is completed, the "Upload 
              file(s)" button changes to OK. Click it. If the uploading 
              fails, try again. (Some times it takes two or three tries 
              to successfully upload a file.) The file now appears in 
              the draft folder.
        iv.)  Submitting your document for review: On the right side of 
              the file look for “+More” Click it to open a drop down 
              list. Select "Submit for review". (The file is moved to 
              the Proofing folder.)
        v.)   Report what you have done to the document team mailing  
              list. (

    Perhaps this is too exact, and perhaps someone else can find a way
to say these things if fewer words.
