We need to extend the approve function inside PageComment_Controller (cms/code/sitefeatures/PageComment.php). Does anyone know how to extend this class so we can send emails once a comment is approved?

Thank you in advance,

Maybe you can try like that:
1. Create MyPageComment_Controller as class extending the PageComment_Controller and redefining the approve function.
2. Redefine the original rule leading to PageComment controller, but with higher priority:

Director::addRules(49, array(
	'PageComment//$Action/$ID' => 'MyPageComment_Controller',

That should hopefully direct the requests to the proper place. Don't forget to dev/build so the sapphire picks up the new class. Let us know how did you get on with that.
