Seriously:

Thanks everyone who helped for helping. Special thanks to Andrew and his scripts! And to the referee and, not to forget, to the author, who had quite a bit of editorial workload here beyond writing a good scientific article.

What needs to be done now is what we have been waiting for for about two years now:

we need to constitute an nPublications steering committee,

we need to contact the editors-to-be, point them two our two test-case-publications and wait if what they see makes them want to become editors-that-are.

we need to post announcements to the world that a new kind of journal has seen the day of light, the

*Publication of the $n$Lab*.finally, we need to pray that somebody out there finds this fascinating enough to volunteer as secretary.

And a voice came from the heavens, saying

So be it published!

And so it was.

]]>According to Elena everything is ok: from now on every moment is fine for us for the article to be published.

]]>Everbody who can please have a last look!

I’m now asking Elena to have a last look

]]>Domenico, while it is fresh in your mind, I’d appreciate any thoughts you have on the conversion process.

I found everything extremely smooth. The only part which I really think could be improved (but I don’t know whether this can be automatized somehow) is putting in evidence if there are parts from the original latex that have been removed in order for the latex-to-itex conversion to work. I’m saying this since when an equation is removed it is not always easy even for the author overlooking the result of the conversion to notice there is something missing there and one could just think to be in presence of some badly composed sentence to be fixed. If there could be a way of keeping track of the removed parts, that would be great.

Apart this, everything has worked like a charm :)

]]>Great, thanks.

Here is the final version *FiorenzaMartinengo2012 (publications)*

Everbody who can please have a last look!

]]>I’ve now created the missing nLab pages Goldman-Millson quasi-abelianity theorem and Cartan homotopy. I also spotted and corrected a couple of typos in the doriah version and added the links to L-infinity-algebra and to gauge transformation where needed. I’m now done with that: if it can be uploaded on the nPublication page I’ll ask Elena to have a final look at it (I’d like to avoid shocking her by coloured hyperlinks :) ) and then I think it can be published

]]>Thanks for the info, Tim. I have just restarted the server. I guess that’s what brought you the page. Anyway, right now it’s back. Thanks for all the info. (I’ll let you all know when we play this international game again. ;-)

]]>I timed a call to the Home Page and it took 2 minutes, but earlier my connection was very slow. (Probably someone in the neighbourhood downloading a film!)

Later I tried to get Recently Revised and gave up after 4 minutes. (AH! It wa s you starting up the server !)

]]>Yes, that’s why I always wait for a dozen pages at once. That’s time spent more efficiently. ;-)

]]>The lab was slow (UK), but how slow I do not know as I left it to load (after several minutes) and went to eat! That was a much better way to pass the time than waiting for it!

]]>As Urs said in #60, we cannot put iTeX in links, but we really should. We can create $\infty$-groupoid (as `[$\infty$-groupoid](http://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/infinity-groupoid)`

, so why not $\infty$-groupoid (as `[[infinity-groupoid|$\infty$-groupoid]]`

)?

Wow, it looks like the latter *does* work on the Forum!

Yeah, it’s slooooooow. Not down. I just got one page I asked for 8 minutes later.

But I am not trying any restarts at the moment: because with the steering committee members we are currently trying to figure out if everybody is experiencing this. The opinion has been voiced that on some people’s end the $n$Lab is not actually slow.

Everybody who can access the $n$Lab right now please drop me a message, together with an indication where on the planet your ISP is.

]]>I’m now creating Goldman-Millson quasi-abelianity theorem and Cartan homotopy (or better I was, since the nLab seems to have just gone down :( )

]]>I wouldn’t think so: I just hadn’t copied over the latest version yet. But check, maybe I am missing something. Here is the latest Doriath version now moved over to the nPublications again

ah, sorry! I thought it had already been moved.

But I’ll not keep that up-to date until we have a stable version on Doriath.

sure.

Okay, here is

projective manifold, check if that serves its purpose

that’s ok

Even if stuff is explained later in the article, for general purpose could you just paste the corresponding sentence over to its dedicated entry. What should go in Goldman-Millson quasi-abelianity theorem ?

I’ll create an nLab entry for this later this evening

]]>I am learning from this process that we should add more redirects for “category:people”-entries for fairly well-known people. That way Andrew’s script will better find them and link them. For instance now the following three all redirect to the same entry

(Clearly we can’t do this with every name. But as long as it works, I guess it would be helpful if we follow this pattern.)

]]>Note that in passing from doriath to the nPublication page the gothic letters in the SVG has gone lost

]]>Hi Urs,

great work, thanks! For quasi-abelianity we just need the definition: a differential graded Lie algebra is said to be quasi-abelian if it is homotopy equivalent to a cochain complex (i.e. to an “abelian” differential graded Lie algebra). Anyway, this is recalled within teh text of the article, so if we do not have an nLab page with this definition, this is still ok. For Cartan homotopy I’ll now write a stub. “projective manifold” can be linked to “projective variety” which is already in nLab.

Concerning the linking s of $L_\infty$-algebra, I’ll later edit on doriah so that $L_\infty$-algebra there will actually point to L-infinity-algebra.

Note that in passing from doriath to the nPublication page the gothic letters in the SVG has gone lost: probably an intermediate editor has been used at some point. By copying-and-pasting directly from doriath to the nPublication page one should be able to avoid this problem.

Will post here as I will have edited on doriath (this will happen in 8 hours or so)

]]>I have now created stubs for some of these, but not all. Need to quit now. For some I am not sure where to point to. Domenico, please have a look at the (new) grey links at the beginning of FiorenzaMartinengo2012 (doriath)

]]>I think we still need to make sure that at least in the introduction the important keywords are really linked and linked correctly. Otherwise we are defeating one of the main purpose of the nPublications.

So I have created a stub for period map. We still need now $n$Lab entries (can be just stubs containing just a single reference for the moment) for:

Also where it says “to every nilpotent dgla is naturally associated…” I have made “naturally associated” point to *Lie inetegration*. We could probably add more links like this. The ideal idea here is that no reader is ever left wondering about what the author is referring to, but always has a link behind which more information is found. We don’t need to push this idea all the way, but let’s briefly look at the article to see if there are some important such links which we should still provide.

All right, Domenico has fixed the remaining SVG diagrams.

So it looks like we are done with all the mandatory formatting!

There are still a few things one *could* improve with the links, if one were feeling ambitious. For instance:

“Frobenius manifold” was only linked as “Frobenius manifold” because we didn’t have Frobenius manifold. But clearly we should, and so I now created a stub for it.

“formality” wasn’t recognized as a keyword, while we do have Kontsevich formality. So I added a redirect to make it work.

“$L_\infty$-algebra” is currently not recognized. What should we do about cases like this? We could have links “L-∞ algebra”. Does that look bad? Maybe at least the very first occurence should be linked like this.

One could do more along these lines. Depends on how ambitious we feel. Domenico should decide.

]]>Thanks.

If we make

```
$\infty$-groupoid
```

a redirect, would it then not also appear this way on the screen, i.e. with the dollar signs?

You’ll know how to handle this. It’s not urgent.
