A workflow where editors cannot modify public content without submitting their changes for review

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.

This package applies a workflow definition based on simple publication workflow ... but it ensures that editors cannot modify public content. Instead it enables with which users can check out a working copy of a published item to work on and resubmit for review.

Editors and owners are also restricted from deleting items or reverting them to past versions ... essentially anything that could change published content ... without review.

The package installs a skin layer in order to allow for modifying the iterate interfaces security declaration. If used in conjunction with a theme egg just copy the contents of browser/configuration.xml to the one in your theme.
