Hi Alex,
regarding your questions and guesses about channels...

Unfortunatly not much so far.

Correct. It's like you create channels as a folder structure. Then you have
your content item (let's say a news item) and you have channels that are
intenend for the news items. You have output templates where you say
"display this news channel at that page", perhaps by attaching a property to
a page. When you write a news item, you select in which channels it should
appear, and multiple ones can be selected. And then the news item appears on
all the pages. Stuff like that.

Sure, it all will be in the magic upcoming documentation, at last we will
give you what we use so far. Nothing will be held back. But I know this is
beginning to sound lame as I keep promising without delivering much (beside
that releases). I am sorry but please give us just some more weeks time.
