First, I'd like to say that your questions are not at all trivial, and I
had to do a lot of research to answer these questions for my own work.

Squishdot is a product that creates sites similar to Slashdot. It looks

If you need more workflow features, then the CMF might be more suitable
for you. Please read through the documentation at http://cmf.zope.org
before you install CMF, it is a complex software package.
