    just out of a whim, I expanded a little the text at Fermat curve

    Made some corrections to the history, and added reference to Friedman’s Grand conjecture at the end.

    Made some corrections to the history

    Could you say explicitly which corrections to the history you have in mind? What I see from the logs is that at Fermat curve you just changed “modularity conjecture” to “modularity conjector for semistable elliptic curves” and at Ribet’s theorem you changed “assuming” to “together with assuming”.

    Wiles didn’t prove the Modularity Conjecture in full, and it wasn’t necessary to do so. I didn’t change Ribet’s theorem today, it must have been a while ago. I fixed the statement that there were no rational points to no nontrivial rational points for n3n\geq 3, and the result that for n=2n=2 the curve is just the projective line. I added mention that ’direct proof’ is generally taken to mean in some formal system of arithmetic, for instance EFA, as Friedman conjectures.

    Okay, thanks for the qualification of the modularity statement.

    Sorry about the thing with Ribet’s theorem: I had created that today, and the change I saw was by myself! :-)
