    When pointing somebody to it, I noticed that the entry n-category is in a rather sad state and in particular it used to start out in a rather unhelpful fashion. I have now tried to briefly fix at least the latter problem by expanding and editing the first two sentences a bit. Notably I made sure that a pointer to (∞,n)-category appears early on, for that is a place with more robust information, currently.

    I noticed that n-category still contained an old query box from me remarking on a rumor that Joyal’s definition is not quite right. This has since been made precise and fixed by Dimitri Ara, so I added a remark to that effect and removed the query box. Ara’s notion of “n-quasicategory” appears to be missing from the nLab and in particular from the entry (infinity,n)-category, but I don’t have time to add it now.

    Dimitri Ara’s stuff is all discussed at model structure on cellular sets, and linked to from the relevant entries.

    But it is true that I failed to highlight the term “n-quasicategory” when writing that entry. I have now created n-quasicategory and cross-linked with relevant entries.

    [ the hyphen-bug is effective. I tried to add redirects with the (invisible) variants of the hyphen. But if some links to “n-quasicategory” are still broken, we need to replace them by copy-and-pasting the entry title ]

    Ah, great, thanks.
