This package provides a custom workflow for the Plone CMS. Formal workflow is designed for sites where there may be many editors for whom unmoderated access to change live published content on the web site is not desired. A typical scenario may be an organistaion's public website which has to comply with certain legal restrictions or editorial style for example. To ensure this compliance only a limited subset of editors are trusted to review and publish content. Whilst content in the private state is available to all editors.
The workflow emulates that used by the current University of Bristol CMS, released as a reusable component for current Plone. It has been used for a number of client sites, including the Equality Challenge Unit and the European Agency.
