    Added an "Examples"-section to well-pointed topos and to Boolean topos mentioning Set and models for ETCS.

    started a section well-pointed (oo,1)-topos as parts of the blog discussion here

    In the course of that I added to the plain definition the statement that the global section functor is faithful

    The pretopos section ends in a sentence I don’t know how to interpret:

    But of course it applies whenever one is studying a pretopos.

    Does this really mean topos here at the end? If not, what is “it”?

    I think the “it” means this bit:

    we have to strengthen the condition that 1 is a generator to the condition that 1 is a strong generator,

    And I think the “whenever” means that it’s not just in thinking about a predicative category of sets, but an arbitrary pretopos.

    Clarified last paragraph of the section “In a pretopos”

    Fixed the last equivalent version of well-pointedness, and added a proof that 1 is also a strong generator.

    Added a proof that in classical logic, well-pointedness is equivalent to the conjunction nondegenerate + Boolean + two-valued + split supports. This seems to be hard to find in the literature.

    Added section “References”, at this time containing only some references to Mac Lane and Moerdijk’s SGL. Also added some remarks.

    Added citations for the recently added theorem, thanks to an anonymous contributor by email.
