Sometime during Aug 31/Sep 1, a P68 was reported for M1471, completing its factorization, making it #316

EDIT:- The cofactor is a proven prime, so mersenne.ca status can be changed from PRP to P

OK, it now shows as a proven prime at mersenne.ca, based on the certificate at factordb.com

The new factor showed up at FactorDB and at mersenne.ca, but not at mersenne.org... presumably mersenne.ca and mersenne.org exchange data both ways daily, so it would get there eventually? But I decided to manually report it to mersenne.org anyway, just to be sure...

"Insufficient information for accurate CPU credit. For stats purposes, assuming factor was found using ECM with B1 = 50000. CPU credit is 0.0000 GHz-days."

If the actual discoverer is a GIMPS user, maybe the database can be adjusted.

It occurred to me to run a screenscraping script to collect all Mersenne exponents under 10,000 known to FactorDB, and crosscheck them with the GIMPS database. I found one more new factor there:

M1489 has a factor: 95909518295775374166321292697000685895150503357477127

(53 digits)

It was reported (by who?) to FactorDB on August 17. The remaining 295-digit cofactor is composite, however.

Does anyone know who this person is, who is finding large new factors for very small Mersenne exponents, independently of GIMPS.

Just a month ago, I ran a systematic crosscheck of exponents under 1 million (prompted by this thread), and synchronized the data on both FactorDB and GIMPS. Obviously it will be worthwhile to keep checking FactorDB every few weeks, for the very small exponents at least, to see if new ones keep cropping up.

Have you tried contacting SSW?

No, but these exponents are a tad larger than the Cunningham project limit.

Post #38 on page 4 of the thread P-1 factoring attempts at smallest-remaining Mersenne numbers with no known factors might give a clue.

Also, anyone that contributes to these forums would surely manually report any new finds to PrimeNet, which our mystery person is not doing.

How do you figure? You said the cofactor is 295 digits, right? So this is either GNFS-295 on the remaining cofactor, or SNFS on the original 1489-bit number.

Both would be world records.

Yes the cofactor is 295 digits, or 977 bits.

I either had a brain freeze or I didn't know what I was talking about. Pick the most charitable explanation.

to be fair other than primes the cofactor can't divisors up to a 106 digit number otherwise the composite divisor would have to divide by one of the primes already given or a prime below the last divisor shown.
