    I have now removed the lock on editing the page monoidal category. The commit can be seen on github. I made a trivial edit and then another one to put the page back as it was before, to test that editing was now possible.

    On the part about oplax monoidal categories, what does “weakly representable” mean? Does it mean satisfying the existence but not uniqueness part of representability (in type theory terminology β\beta but not η\eta)? Is there an appropriate link?

    It means the morphism only satisfies a universal property (with an ordinary isomorphism) for multimorphisms without extra objects added on each side. See for instance section 9 of
