Our documentation never explains what shadowing is, it just assumes you know to
search for 'shadow' in the TAG to find out about the configuration parameters.

Alright, I believe I'm done. A new chapter on shadowing, with a brief but
hopefully sufficient description of shadowing and our intended use case is in
place.

Great documentation! It feels very well structured and explains the feature
clearly. Just a few comments:


> The ThinLinc client must be configured for shadowing to be able to shadow other users.

This sentence feels a bit wierd to me, I would prefer something like:

"The ThinLinc client must be configured for shadowing to enable shadowing of
other users."



> In some cases, the user being shadowed need to be aware that their session is being monitored. By running the tl-shadow-notify program during the session lifetime, a window will pop up with information about the shadowing whenever shadowing starts or stops.
>
> To activate tl-shadow-notify, a symbolic link must be created:

To clarify what the symobolic link achieves, could we write like this?

"To automatically activate tl-shadow-notify every time shadowing of a session
starts, a symbolic link must be created:"
