```Hi seqfans,

So there is a pb on A117871. Neil, Richard, I propose the following correction :
Replace the sequence line :
%S A117871
0,0,4,3,4,5,3,7,4,3,4,11,3,13,4,3,4,17,3,19,4,3,4,23,3,5,4,3,4,29,3,31,
by :
%S A117871 0,4,3,4,5,3,7,4,3,4,11,3,13,4,3,4,17,3,19,4,3,4,23,3,5,4,3,4,29,3,31,

the offset line :
%O A117871 0,3
by :
%O A117871 1,2

and crossrefs line :
%Y A117871 Cf. A090368, A117078, A118534, A117563.
by :
%Y A117871 Cf. A090368, A020639, A117078, A117563, A118534.

The b-files,
b090368.txt (10000) for A090368 :

b117871.txt (10000) for A117871 :

(0,4,3,4,5,3,7,4,3,4,11,3,13...)

best,

Rémi
