Best way to (reversibly) prevent an add-on Python file from being updated?

I try to update our v9c setup weekly, but it's causing a bit of a problem. We use a modified `main.py` file for the addon `payment_paypal` that works around issues with the return URL for Paypal. Everytime we update, this file is replaced with the original.

Before I go changing permissions and such in a semi-production setup (we're live testing with a few users), I wanted to ask everyone's opinion here. Suggestions?

I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

Seems that you need to setup git attributes to keep that file from being merged. Here is a good read about that
