Pro-homotopy theory involves the study of model category and other abstract homotopy theoretic structure on pro-categories of spaces or simplicial sets. (The term can also be used for any extension of homotopical structures for a category $C$ to the corresponding $Pro(C)$.)

but a correction to an error in the proof of the main result was included in

G. Quick, Continuous group actions on profinite spaces, J. Pure Appl. Algebra 215 (2011), 1024-1039.
