I am in the process of reproducing the proof of the main theorem in Schwede-Shipley’s “Equivalence of monoidal model categories” at monoidal Quillen adjunction (see the references and pointers given there).

I find that there are some intermediate steps that need to be filled in and which require a tad more thinking than just copying what they write.

This mainly concerns some pure category-theoretic arguments about adjunctions, which is entirely independent of the model category theoretic argument that is later built on it. I am saying this in case you are an expert eager to help on some pure category theory issues but maybe not so much into model category theory.

I think I can figure things out myself eventually, but since I am a bit time pressured and since working toghether is fun anyway, I thought I’d just highlight here what I am doing and where there is still things remaining to be done.

So I am working on the section Lift to Quillen adjunction on monoids. This breaks up the Schwede-Shipley argument into a bunch of small lemmas and propositions and aims to write out the proofs. Partly this is spelled out. Whenever there is a gap in the argument that still needs to be written up or even figured out, I put ellipses

```
(...)
```

for the moment. I’ll be working now on filling these ellipses with content, so where exactly you see them may change over time. But if you feel you can easily help fill some of them, you are kindly invited to do so!
