[seqfan] Re: A problem of OEIS

In my own problem I now have proved a beautiful one-to-one correspondence 
between terms of A233334 and A124771. They indeed coincide, and I shall 
relocate all comments and Peter's b-file to A123771.
 But I posed a general problem when not always a solution comes so fast.

Best regards,

It depends. Sometimes it's best to add a comment on an existing sequence,
especially if the conjecture is sufficiently certain. (We don't have a
sequence of even perfect numbers for this reason -- it's probably just
A000396.) But sometimes not-yet-proved-to-be=duplicates may be appropriate.
What do you have in mind?
