Comments and fixes

OK, I worked through your online comments as well as those emailed to me privately. This time I decided not to answer all the comments individually one by one as I’ve done in the past (it takes a fair amount of time and is kind of boring). The downside of this is that some of the comments are unanswered but already fixed in the text, so a casual visitor of the site may be confused.

If you are wondering how we dealt with a comment, or what the state of affairs was before the fix, you’ll have to look in the commit log for the Stacks project. For example, Kiran’s comment was addressed in this commit. If you look closely, you’ll see that I made a typo in the fix, which was then fixed here.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a good way to find my commit responding to Kiran’s comment unless you are comfortable using the command line and git. However, in most cases the comment will be about a lemma, proposition, remark, or theorem and then there is an easy way to do so. For example consider this comment by Keenan. To see how I addressed his comment, surf to the page, click on “history” in the right panel, and click on the diff corresponding to the edit on February 4, 2016.
