Making changes to Open edX carries a price: every time you want to upgrade to a new version of Open edX, the changes have to be adapted to the new version. After doing this for a while, the changes accumulate, and every new stable release requires weeks of work, sometimes months. To avoid this, we suggest an approach that will benefit both you and the project: make sure that your changes are designed in a way that is useful to the larger community, and contribute them all to Open edX. If the community is also using your changes, then new developments will take them into account and you won't have to maintain them by yourself. In this way, new stable versions of Open edX will already include them.
