In a thread today I wanted to refer to John Downer's ideas about revivals etc which are available here:
But before I found them there I went looking in the wiki for some shorter possibly more general treatement of the ideas ( many of which were in use before his article) in some form there. I could not find anything at all. Which seems really silly. I started to think about working on it myself but then I realized I aught to chat with the many & sundry about it before I tried.
So here is my proposal : It seems like some set of categories ( heavily indebted I suspect to John Downer) would be reall useful to have in the wiki. I am not keen on using his categories 'as is' in part because that seems like stealing, but also because that would be lazy. We aught to come to a consensus of our own. This does not preculude using his work as a point to jump off from. To that end here is his list:
What do you think?
