starting a stub, for the moment just to record references.

There is a plethora of constructions in the literature. Has anyone discussed in detail if/how these relate to the evident general abstract definition (maps of $\infty$-stacks from the given geometric groupoid to the Deligne complex)?

I see that some authors, like Redden, partially go in this direction, but I haven’t seen yet a comprehensive account to this extent.

Is there anything in this that we couldn’t have picked up from your work?

Attempted to clarify the relationship between the definitions of Kübel-Thom and Redden vs. Gomi in the references.

The last paragraph of the Idea section is also meant to deal with this.

I seem to remember that Gomi’s definition is fine for finite groups?

Yes, Gomi’s definition only works for finite groups. (So, basically, orbifolds.)

Thanks, so that agrees with what is says in the main text. I have added the qualification about finite groups to Gomi’s reference item.
