I took each of the conjectures where the conjectured k>1000000 and ran a range of 10000 (900000909999) up to n=500 with the script to get an idea as to the difficulty to proving them. The following list is an extrapolation of that data, showing the number of expected remaining k per conjecture at n=500 and n=25000, presuming that about 85% of the k would be eliminated. It is my opinion that outside of R301, that this project should be wary of anyone reserving one of these conjectures. Although I could see someone getting some of these to n=10000, n=25000 seems to be out of the question. I wonder if we should reject any reservations on the other bases because management would be nightmarish.

I wouldn't reject reservations outright but I would, as I've done in the past, drill someone on exactly how they plan to test such a range. I also look at their number of posts and general experience level around the mersenneforum. Frequently when I tell them the amount of work involved, they choose something different, reduce their reservation, or as I've had happen a few times, they just go away. Where did you get the 85% reduction in k's remaining from n=500 to n=2500? In my experience, for lowconjectured bases, it's about 35% and for highconjectured bases, it's close to 50% for a 5fold increase in nvalue. That's an average with a fairly wide variation in specific bases. (I've run a lot of bases with ck<10K from n=1K to 5K in my effort to do all bases with < x number of k's remaining at n=5K.) You might run a few k=1000 ranges from these up to n=2500 just to convince yourself of the fact that 85% is too high of a reduction. Remember that S63 has about a 76% reduction from n=1K to 10K but that's a 10fold increase (vs. 5fold from n=500 to 2500) in nvalue and S63 is much higherweight than most bases, as are most b=2^q1 and b==(1 mod 30) bases.

The table in the first post says the lowest remaining CK is >1000 but Vassilis stats page says there are 3.2% of the 100<CK<1000 bases untested. Where's the catch?

I think the catch is the 3.2% are in the "Testing just started" phase. They are reserved, hence removed from the first post. When the results are returned Vassilis' stats page will update accordingly.

Correct. The script will count a conjecture as tested only after a search limit and the number of k's remaining are shown.

Please remove the R66 conjecture from the untested Riesel conjectures and if more "just started" bases remain in the untested list, then please remove them.
If this thread is not correct it makes it hard for me to show the correct progress in the Overall project progress thread at srbase. Thank you.
