I'm not sure this list is correct - how can we have the middle of these - #135?

Code:
134	N	9370	P119 = 3509710619*277#/5610 - 4098	34.2712	Dana Jacobsen	2018
135	N	9398	P126 = 3087143219*283#/30 - 4188	32.4299	Dana Jacobsen	2016
136	N	9738	P127 = 7850579863*283#/30 - 5534	33.4953	Dana Jacobsen	2016
And I think the list needs to be renamed: "No known larger gaps have greater merit" - I think this is what the list was trying to achieve.
The list is based on gap size not merit. Merits can decrease as long as the gap size increases.
