I have been extending blogholder and blogentry in order to allow customgroups edit only blogentires in CMS.

To do that, I have modified in /blog/code/BlogHolder.php:

class BlogHolder extends BlogTree

class BlogHolder extends BlogTree implements PermissionProvider

and added to the blogholder class:

function canCreate() {
		return Permission::check("CUSTOMGROUP");
	function canDelete() {
		return Permission::check("CUSTOMGROUP");
	function canEdit() {
		return Permission::check("CUSTOMGROUP");

Now, I would like to make this change blog-module-upgrade save - meaning, move this to /mysite/code/

I already have there a BlogHolderDecorator which extends the Sitetree by adding some tabs to menu.

Could anyone suggest me how should i do that? I think I should create a new BlogHolder.php within /mysite/code/ but what should be in it ?

Thanx for a possibly quick reaction, as site for client is already up and I would like to protect the changes to BlogHolder before a future upgrade.
