It is unfortunate that you have made changes to core, it is always good to
check on the ML before making changes to any open source project to see
what the project processes are and to get guidance about how to approach
the changes you want to make.

As Dimitar says in another post, as Geany is distributed in binary form by
the distros, your suggestion of modifying source files *will not work*.

I am afraid that you will have to re-do the changes as a plugin conforming
to the plugin API to be accepted.
