Federate unpublishing blog post
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Overview

When a post moves from published on a blog to draft, we should federate the change.

Implementation

Right now if we send out a Delete activity, we get the desired effect. But platforms like Mastodon don't do anything if we later send another Create activity with the same post ID (for example, by re-publishing the post). Need to see if we can do anything better, or if these platforms need to change.

Another option: versioning the post ID? Would add a lot of complexity, but might fix this.
