    • Versions available: 8.x-2.6 (D8 & D9), 3.0.0-alpha1 (D9 & D10)
  • Maintainership
    • Seeking a new maintainer
  • Number of open issues:
    • 17 open, 3 of which are bugs
  • Does have test coverage
  • Usage stats:
    • 9 sites
  • Maintainer(s):
    • Jheadstrom, who maintains his own stable of modules, including a number in the Message stack
  • Module features and usage
    • Creates a new tab on nodes, on which a content creator (or anyone with the necessary permission) can assign one or more editors or reviewers
    • Can specifically designate which roles can be editors or reviewers
    • Editors have the ability to make changes and transition content between states, while reviewers can only move between states
    • For each transition in your workflow, can specify if editors and/or approvers are able to perform the transition
    • Can optionally send a notification email to workflow participants as they are added to a piece of content
    • I used to have a boss who liked to say “The surest way to starve a dog is to put two people in charge of feeding it”, so the idea of specifically assigning individuals to individual pieces of content is potentially very powerful
