I'm working on a SharePoint 2010 publishing website where content authoring happens on an authoring site, e.g. http://authoring, and scheduled content deployment jobs deploy published content to a public site, e.g. http://public.
To simulate a staging environment, I would like users to be able to see checked in but not published content.
I know that members of the Visitors group can see published content. However, published content is also picked up by the next content deployment job.
Is there such a combination of permissions that allows people to view checked in but not published content, but not be able to edit it?
