A group is created with 3 members. Lets call the group Financial Aid. This group gets categorized as well. We will call the category financialaid. The group can then only edit content in the financialaid category, and all new content is assigned to that category, unless another category is added to the group. The you could choose from 2,3,4 categories, depending on how many are assigned to a particular group. A group is created with 3 members. Lets call the group Financial Aid.

One user in the group has approval. The other two can create/edit content. The user with approval is sent an e-mail that that content needs to be approved. This content goes into a holding area. The old content stays available to the general public until the new content is approved. This would apply to all content modules, including 3rd party modules. One user in the group has approval.

  Approval would also be filtered. If a user has approval, but then only has rights to Article Manager, but not Blockmaker or Calendar, then that user only sees Articles in his her group to approve. It would act more like a filter than a restriction, show the user with approval only the content they need to see. In essence managing the content better.
   
  Currently Calendar items get posted accross groups? René has re-written the Calendar module to allow it to filter by category. In this regard, the Calendar should behave in the exact same manner as Articles, Blocks, Announcements or Webpages. Why Groups are brought into this seems a mystery. Categories should be the driving force behind ALL content.
