The Situation Large institutions require all content to go through an approval process—including edits to already published content. Even small sites benefit from the ability to edit published content in a draft state, without un-publishing it first. Many websites (or content types) require more than a two-state publication workflow.
The Problem Drupal only allows for a binary publication state and associates this state with the entire node, making even simple content moderation workflows difficult to implement.
