Example 90.15.8. In Lemma 90.9.5 we constructed objects $R \in \widehat{\mathcal{C}}_\Lambda$ such that $\underline{R}|_{\mathcal{C}_\Lambda }$ is smooth and such that

$H_1(L_{k/\Lambda }) = \mathfrak m_ R/\mathfrak m_ R^2 \quad \text{and}\quad \Omega _{R/\Lambda } \otimes _ R k = \Omega _{k/\Lambda }$

Let us reinterpret this using the theorem above. Namely, consider $\mathcal{F} = \mathcal{C}_\Lambda$ as a category cofibred in groupoids over itself (using the identity functor). Then $\mathcal{F}$ is a predeformation category, satisfies (S1) and (S2), and we have $T\mathcal{F} = 0$. Thus $\mathcal{F}$ satisfies condition (3) of Theorem 90.15.5. The theorem implies that (2) holds, i.e., we can find a minimal versal formal object $\xi \in \widehat{\mathcal{F}}(S)$ over some $S \in \widehat{\mathcal{C}}_\Lambda$ satisfying (90.15.0.2). Lemma 90.9.3 shows that $\Lambda \to S$ is formally smooth in the $\mathfrak m_ S$-adic topology (because $\underline{\xi } : \underline{R}|_{\mathcal{C}_\Lambda } \to \mathcal{F} = \mathcal{C}_\Lambda$ is smooth). Now condition (90.15.0.2) tells us that $\text{Der}_\Lambda (S, k) \to 0$ is bijective on $\text{Der}_\Lambda (k, k)$-orbits. This means the injection $\text{Der}_\Lambda (k, k) \to \text{Der}_\Lambda (S, k)$ is also surjective. In other words, we have $\Omega _{S/\Lambda } \otimes _ S k = \Omega _{k/\Lambda }$. Since $\Lambda \to S$ is formally smooth in the $\mathfrak m_ S$-adic topology, we can apply More on Algebra, Lemma 15.40.4 to conclude the exact sequence (90.3.10.2) turns into a pair of identifications

$H_1(L_{k/\Lambda }) = \mathfrak m_ S/\mathfrak m_ S^2 \quad \text{and}\quad \Omega _{S/\Lambda } \otimes _ S k = \Omega _{k/\Lambda }$

Reading the argument backwards, we find that the $R$ constructed in Lemma 90.9.5 carries a minimal versal object. By the uniqueness of minimal versal objects (Lemma 90.14.5) we also conclude $R \cong S$, i.e., the two constructions give the same answer.
