what you do is that you publish them under /sections/location or 
whatever .. by doing copy and paste (as it seems you've done already in 
) this is the equivalent of publishing them all at the same time. The 
documents are then in the published state.

then you can move the work document from your home folder to the common 
workspace. By doing cut and paste.- ( if you do copy and paste you will 
create  *new* copies -- which is not what you want.) So do cut them 
before pasting them.

I've changed the default folder view to show 'folder contents'

folders make sense if there is more than one document in them. Otherwise 
publishing a document in the  parent folder is simpler way of achieving 
the same thing. There is no equivalent of the "folder" where you add an 
"index_html" as in Plone.

It could be than some folders are redundant. We can remove them afterwards.

These are portlets, so you have to use the portlet editor. If you've got 
the text that should go in them I can replace them now,
