    Dear nnLab colleagues,

    I just split off historical note on Grothendieck topology from the entry Grothendieck topology.

    My principle is that whenever the discussion of the terminology or historical issues, or variant in the literature becomes long it justifies creating a historical note entry. Maybe we could add a category historical-note (of entries) for terminological discussions, bibliographical variants and other social zoo. When the historical remarks are short it is better to keep them in the original entry. How to add a new category ? (I suppose one just writes it. I forgot where it is written what the current entry categories are).

    A previous historical entry is historical note on characteristic classes.

    Sounds good to me.

    New categories are created as needed, so just write category: historical notes or whatever you want to call it. It may help to have a special index page when the number of pages in this category gets large.

    Where is the list of all existing categories, again ? Thanks.

    If you go to the “all pages” link then it lists the categories across the top. I think that that’s the only way to get a list.

    Of course, “all pages” has been disabled on the main Lab. But its subpages exist, so try http://ncatlab.org/nlab/list/meta to get a list across the top.

    Whoops! Forgot about that. Good catch.
