In the Cat 0 and Cat 1 FTC range there are almost 200 P1 assignments just sitting there with no expiry dates. Many are over 3 months old. This looks to be the latest exploit to tie up exponents near milestones, or to reserve them for oneself contrary to the standard FTC assignment and expiry rules.

I see several are a relative few of my manual assignments that have fallen through the cracks. I'll work on cleaning those up this week. (A radeon vii can do 30 a day, but only if they successfully complete, and some have crashed in a way that generates messages such as "gcd invalid input" on a resumption attempt.)

https://www.mersenne.org/assignments...hk=1&exfirst=1 Ernst had a batch he did not remember getting, and Ryan Propper has several hundreds none of them started, and several other users have a batch without having started any of them: Runtime Error, BigBrother, Albrecht Heeffer, OneAfterlife etc. All of them were Cat1 when started even those few from September. Should we be doing P1 on Cat1 assignments or should it be done before they reach Cat1 ? Last fiddled with by ATH on 20201202 at 23:10

The problem is that some of them don't have a large memory, so they can only do a P1 with S1 only. From the perspective of the project, that is suboptimal. It would be nice if there is an option for lowmemory FTC contributors to only accept assignments that has a sufficient P1 done. And to give the smallest P1 assignments (for example Cat 0+1) to machines that are proved capable of returning 2Stage P1 results in a reasonably short time, similar to (but simpler than) the rules of FTC/DC. cc George
