    I’m sorry, but this was not yet discussed. I’m not in favour of making a page merely as a landing page to your notes. My comments in the other thread were merely to make sure people could see what material you had. You didn’t specify in what format your notes would be “added to the nLab”. The default of adding things to the nLab is to incorporate them into the pages as written, not just serve as a link to an off-site document. Famous or often-used reference articles or books sometimes get their own page (like the Elephant, for instance, or Higher Topos Theory), but not just any set of notes.

    I did not know you are not in favor of it. If it is irregular and you want me to remove it, I will.

    Yes, I think the appropriate way to add this, if it is appropriate (I haven’t looked at it), would be as a link in the References section of some other page.

  4. I removed the link to the notes. I am contemplating rewriting the notes in nLab. If that wont prove practical, I will request that this page be removed.

  5. Adding a table of contents, this is all an experiment.

    It might be a better idea to experiment in the Sandbox to start with. Or, alternatively, why not incorporate the content of the various sections of your notes into the specific relevant pages?

    I started from Sandbox, but then added the reference and changed the page name. I think Sandbox would be the only place in nLab that this page is referenced from. Anyway, since as suggested the link to my notes was inappropriate, I removed it, but added a table of contents. I took it from your "The default of adding things to the nLab is to incorporate them into the pages as written" to imply that it is basically admissible for me rewrite the material in an nLab page in the format native to nLab. This would take me a long time, given I be able to do at all - I haven't ywt figured out how to define a Latex command like, "\newcommand{\A}{\mathcal{A}}". But before I give it a real shot, I would appreciate to verify that this expository note would be admissible. Thanks.

    I’m not sure I would count all of your notes as expository. There are few explanations of what all the formula-heavy sections mean. One could write a thick book spanning the scope of what you write.

    The TeX-like capabilities of the nLab are not that of full (La)TeX.

    If you want to contribute to the differential geometry content, that’s great. But first see what’s there, and how it could be improved based on what you know of the topic.

    Thanks for the advice. You may be right about the expository nature of the notes, and come to think of it, it is rather hard to collaborate on expository content as it is so style dependent. And conversion from Latex seems not so easy anyway. In view of all this, I would like to request that nLab remove this (experimental) page. As you suggest, I will explore nLab more and look for other ways to contribute.
