Seems good and clean to me ... no need to get any shorter, congrats!

    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.
