I have a client who needs an admin interface for some custom datatypes. This client has asked me if it was possible to set up what is essentially the Save and Publish feature in Silverstripe pagetypes.

One person may insert an interview, another will be allowed to publish it. When the interview is changed, it will have to be republished but should not be taken offline in the meantime. As I am not trying to reinvent the wheel I am wondering if there is a way to use the save/publish principle in a custom datatype (can extend Page if necessary) in ModelAdmin.

I have tried to find some information on this in the wiki with no luck.
