    Started this page to record various facts about large cocompletions as I survey some of the literature. It’s possible that some of these concepts should have their own pages eventually, but at the moment this seems awkward as many don’t already have names in the literature (or have names that are not ideal for various reasons).

    added some more hyperlinks to technical terms

    made “compact category” redirect to here, for the time being.

    Where the notion of “compact categories” is first defined in the entry, I added a warning that this is un-related to “compact closed categories”.

    The line

    in the sense of Isbell (also called a SAFT-category)

    would deserve to be referenced:

    Where did Isbell say “compact category”, and who says “SAFT-category”?

    Added a reference to Isbell, and removed SAFT-category terminology for now, as this appears to be used inconsistently in the literature.

    I have added the doi:10.1007/BF01691344

    and anchored the reference item

    and then linked to it from the text:

    …in the sense of Isbell (1968)
