1- I can't add new files to this tracker item. Should I open a new patch and refer to it?
Depends on whether you want tracker admin access (i.e. become a SF python project member). If you do, you could attach patches to bug reports not written by you.
2- As shadow passwords can only be retrieved when you are root, is a unit test module even useful?
Probably not. Alternatively, introduce a "root" resource, and make that test depend on the presence of the root resource.
3- Should the order of the chapters in the documentation be preserved? I'd rather add spwd below pwd, but this pushes the other unix modules "1 down"...
You could make it a subsection (e.g. "spwd -- shadow passwords") Not sure whether this would be supported by the processing tools; if not, inserting the module in the middle might be acceptable.
In any case, what is important is that the documentation is added - it can always be rearranged later.
