So I call the stage at which the nfs.dat.p file is filled and the best poly is searched

Ah, so by preNFS you really mean the first stage of NFS. I suppose if we're being really strict about the meaning of the word "sieve" then polynomial selection is preNFS and postprocessing is postNFS, but most people use NFS to refer to the whole algorithm rather than just the sieving stage.
I think going straight to GNFS after t50 at this size is suboptimal, but of course everyone's free to do what they want. If you have the resources to do the GNFS yourself, then you also have the resources to do the optimal amount of ECM.

So you ran t50 and then called yafu factor(), which presumably ran at least another t50?

I ran yafu work 45 and after completing this stage automatically started preNFS stage for c168 and c169

You can tune how much ecm yafu will do, by using a "pretest_ratio=..." in yafu.ini file. I usually go with 0.334 (33.4%, which means, for a C168, at least a t55 will be done, and this way have a large chance to avoid a 3way split).

Will the data generated here be used in the paper that is currently published at arxiv or will it be part of a new publication? Do you know when it will be submitted?

The C212/SNFS215 for (13,2) factors as:

If I'm reading the table correctly, the following are available for GNFS:
line 123 (9, 7) c168 line 166 (10, 10) c169 line 180 (2, 11) c163 line 183 (5, 11) c162 You may book all available of the four to me. Last fiddled with by EdH on 20210729 at 12:55
