    Added a remark that the Elephant briefly refers to gaunt categories as “stiff”.

    Amended the definition section with the equivalence stable definition. Add a section about univalent foundations: the gaunt categories as the intersection of the strict and the normal/univalent categories (edit: this is false).

    I made a link to flagged category, which doesn’t yet exist.

    Sorry, I’m confused. I’ve reverted to the previous state. After dinner, I’ll hopefully sort out my confusion, and add back in something correct.

    Tried to make up for my earlier wrong edits by adding some content on related definitions that are invariant under equivalence. I added the remark that core-thin categories precisely make up the intersection of strict categories and (univalent) categories within the type of flagged categories. (This could perhaps belong somewhere else, however.)

    Clarified the idea section, and removed the duplicate properties of univalent categories (the reader can just look those up on univalent category).

    I’m pretty sure all free categories are gaunt, not just those on acyclic graphs. Loops in the graph produce endomorphisms in the free category, but not isomorphisms.

    A better word for “endoisomorphism” is automorphism.

  3. added section on functors and equivalences between gaunt categories.

    Nope, that’s wrong. Discrete categories are gaunt, and any surjection of sets between discrete categories is essentially surjective, but for it to be split essentially surjective is exactly AC.

    I have added hyperlinks to the technical terms in the paragraph on flagged categories, starting with “Incidentally” (here).

  4. Add simplex category and Reedy categories as examples of gaunt categories.
