Best Practices for extending an Open Source project

I am beginning an implementation and customization of an open source e-commerce application (nopCommerce).  I'm looking for any for any suggestions and / or recommendations to annotate or document any source code changes I would make in order to allow for the easiest integration of new versions of the application that are released. I do have TFS 2010 implemented but I do not have much experience with the product.  I tried to merge the source of a new release but ran into some difficulty, especially when files were deleted from the project. For much of the project I can copy existing user controls and create custom versions for my use, but there will be some modification of the actual source code required. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
