I made some minor improvements to the Properties section of pullback, making it match the similar section in pushout insofar as it can. (It’s a bit tiring to have to look at both these pages to get all the basic properties, so I fixed that, but for properties that hold both for pullbacks and dually for pushouts I’m happy to have all the proofs at pullback - that’s how it works now.)

1. Fixed a tiny typo ‘hold -> holds’.

2. Several pages on inductive types/W-types link to this page and use the term “pullback functor” with notation $f^*$, yet if you Ctrl-F on this page, you can’t find this term. This edit at least shortly mentions it and links to base change.

Stipulation: redirect pullback functor to base change
