Where is anything written about ideals in $L_\infty$ algebras? What is the best formulation either in terms of coderivation formalism or explicit multivariable formulas. Does the `obvious' theorem about quotients by an ideal then follow?

Isn't there a natural notion of ideal for algebras over an arbitrary operad? –  Fernando Muro Jun 28 '13 at 12:40
Sounds reasonable, but can you give a reference? –  Jim Stasheff Jun 29 '13 at 21:07
