Unfortunately you can only give a role permission to "access content"
and/or "administer nodes". But often, this does not suffice. You want
editors to be able to browse the nodes in the "content" section and for
example allow them to make a node sticky. But you don't want them to
delete a node or change it's visibility.
My patch offers the following permissions:
* access content
* administer nodes
* change revision setting
* delete nodes
* make nodes sticky
* moderate nodes
* promote nodes
It does also really check if the user is allowed to perform a certain
action and deny it if that is not the case. It does also hide the
specified checkboxes and options from the dropdown box.
The patch is for 4.6.3 but should also work with HEAD.
