I have been working on the workflow stuff. The projects I have found
1) DCWorkflow: is trigger based workflow. You have to actively move
objects from one workflow state to the next. NOt really what we
want. It will work, but not ideal.
2) OpenFlow: activity based, API is documented OK, not a lot of
examples that I have found.
3) CMFOpenFlow: activity based, is a fork of OpenFlow, more tightly
integrated into plone, better documented, but older.
4) AlphaFlow: activity based, good documentation (that I can see,)
including how to do a file system based definition, the others above
really only document how to do it through the UI, not really what we
want. But, it really needs Plone 2.1, and Zope 2.8. Our product
runs on 2.8 fine, I have found no glitches yet. Haven't moved to
Plone 2.1, but it should be pretty painless.
I would like to use 4 above, if not, then provably 2.
