    I’ve added Peter May’s Galois theory example to M-category in a section “Applications”.

    I added the observation to M-category that \mathcal{M} is a Grothendieck quasitopos (which is something that had never actually occurred to me before yesterday). In fact it can be described as the category of ¬¬\neg \neg-separated presheaves on 2=(01)\mathbf{2} = (0 \to 1).

    Nice! I guess maybe that is in some sense ’the simplest nontrivial Grothendieck quasitopos’?

    Technical note: When you link to a particular section of an nLab page, you should give that section a permanent name (in the HTML), because the automatic section names may change.

    So #### Example: $Subset$ becomes #### Example: $Subset$ {#Subset} (for example).

    Thanks, Mike! And yes, probably. (Only at length am I getting better at instinctively knowing whether a category is a quasitopos.)

    And thanks very much, Toby – I forgot to do that.

    I’ve updated M-category#definitions slightly to give M the alternative name MonoMono and mention the Sierpinski topos.

    should it also be mentioned that it contains the double negation topology separated presheaves?

    Well, MonoMono is the category of ¬¬\neg\neg-separated presheaves in Set Set^\to. And yes, that’s worth mentioning on the page (which I’ve now done).

    Created Related Concepts section; added relative category and F-category.
