Abstract: We consider descent data in cosimplicial crossed groupoids.
This is a combinatorial abstraction of the descent data for gerbes in
algebraic geometry. The main result is this: a weak equivalence between
cosimplicial crossed groupoids induces a bijection on gauge equivalence
classes of descent data.
