Thanks for your response. There's a lot going on in that project, but I think I see what needs to be done. It's basically overriding 
    def after_map(self, map):
            'guidelines', '/guidelines',
        return map
and the corresponding controller, yes? I guess the other question is whether it would be easy to hook the editing of the copy into the same screen where you can edit the contents of the About page?

Warm Regards,

One approach I found based on data.gc.ca is to create an extension, but it wasn't clear to me how to access a view or controller that wouldn't be susceptible to breakage after a CKAN release. Any suggestions or links to documentation are appreciated.
