Great job, thanks for that. Can you point me at any documentation on
how to use it?

Select the news-category, choose create new page of type news article
→ fill out the content-tab. Save [& Publish]. :-)

When there is no content, but only a link defined, you'll just get a
link to the original article, when you fill out the content-boxes, one
is the "teaser" that is shown on the overview, and the other one is
only shown on the real article's page (i.e. when user clicks the "read
full article" or title-link)

See also the readme here

Or else could you write me some kind of instructions
here, and I'll rework them into a page on the website team's wiki

There is not much to tell, other than to not create the hierarchy
(i.e. the date the news is filed under) yourself, but just create it
as child of the main News entry, it will be put into the appropriate
date-hierarchy automatically (as the autofiling option is checked for
the main news category)
Apart from that the lables on an Article's Content-tab should be

Once we've got this news section functionally rolled out with 1 or 2
launching articles, I'll attend an SC confcall and get the SC's
desires as to how it should be operated.

That's one of the reasons why I favored the news module - you can just
use a link to an existing blog-entry/announcement mail and don't have
to duplicate the content...
