I have used Plone and Zope extensively, and while I have great respect
for Zope's technical heritage -- I used to be a Zope developer almost
exclusively -- I would urge anyone to stay a long way away from Plone.

It is horribly complex and inflexible, and any kind of customization
requires a lot of work. And I say this after once having worked with
Plone Solutions as a consultant on what was in theory a very modest,
trivial site.

I would rather recommend a simpler CMS such as Drupal or a proven wiki
such as MediaWiki. You don't need a formal workflow, really; just a
way to restrict editing to verified users, which is something a lot of
CMSs and wikis do just fine.
