There seems to be a problem in the literature about the definition of the 'standard' coboundary on the 'Cartan-Chevalley-Eilenberg' algebra - the problem is the signs!
Where/when did things go wrong? And what's the best way to reference so the next generation learns only the correct signs?
with more precision: the usual C-E coboundary has two summations - for the module structure and for the algebra each is separately correct in all references but some have the sum squaring to zero and others not -i.e. wrong relative sign for the two summations

The signs are correct (I believe) in
