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. This package applies a workflow definition based on simple publication workflow ... but it ensures that editors cannot modify public content. Instead it enables plone.app.iterate 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 published items or reverting them to past versions, essentially anything that could change published content, without review.
