publish menu - altering widget


Hi All,

I've been tasked with modifying the publish page menu in EPiServer 7.5.

Specifically when an editor clicks "Ready to Publish" , we want to:

- capture editor comments

- store these to a page property,

- then submit the page to workflow manually in the code behind 

First off using dojo I created a function to attach to Epi.cms.publishmenu and was able to add a button. This worked but I thought it would give me control of the entire publish "popup" but I was only able to append above "schedule for publish".

So next, I decided to look into the episerver widgets in ClientResources folder.

After lots of troubleshooting I found that the widgets are defined under /appdata/Modules/CMS/3.0.1097/ClientResources/epi-cms/widgets/templates... however these appear to be "compiled/Compressed" together into a widgets.js file in epi-cms/widgets/

I can edit the widgets.js file, but it would be far easier to edit the template files and then generate a compile/compress. My question is how would I do this?  Also, why do we have the same structure repeated under /appdata/ModuleRepository/... ?

Also, why do I have 

Appreciate any help.
