But please let me know if any of this is incorrect, since I'm going off what the mersenne.ca and my scant/outdated knowledge.
I'm afraid the project is not coordinated anymore... I took offline the site when we had more than six months without reservations. I don't think William is following it anymore. But if you want to offer your work to advance the bitlevel to 87, you are mostly welcome! Just post here your advancements, so that people like James at mersenne.ca can keep his records updated.
