Description (last modified by saraedum)

The documentation of is_prime says:

sage: n=17
sage: n.is_prime?
   * "proof" -- If False, use a strong pseudo-primality test. If True,
     use a provable primality test.  If unset, use the default
     arithmetic proof flag.

however no example or pointer is given to explain how to access or change the "default arithmetic proof flag".

I abused your ticket to test the git dev scripts. I turned your patch into a branch. I hope you don't mind.
