Best way to extend existing Share component?

Hello,

We are extending existing Share components (e.g. dashlets) to make small changes to them. Yet, we have 2 questions about best practice (and upgradeability) here.

1) If we make a small change to one of the files (e.g. only the .js or the .ftl), seems we have to copy all files (.xml, .ftl, .js, …) to the web-extension folder. Is this correct?
In our opinion, that would cause issues when upgrading.

2) Some components (e.g. dashlets) also refer to a .css which can be found under /share/components/dashlets (and not under /share/WEB-INF/classes/Alfresco/… How can we extend these files? Where should they be put?

Thx,
Tom
