Please send me your created data from the Harveypage for including in the Wiki. I detemine if it's doable then.

There is also the data from Gunther Loh's page, but he only has bases <= 100. Primewiki only has 20 of those bases. It seems to me that the process to create a new page with all of the requisite data is time consuming. I suppose that if someone created all a bunch of empty pages (which I assume is manual) that it would be easy to write code to generate the contents of those pages from the older projects.

Ok, then this to keep in mind:
Harvey's page as said got many bases only tested to n=10k or so but no prime found. Like Code:
12800  12999 [13001] 13000  13099 [13100] 13100  13199 [13200] And:  512 1298(Walker),11223(Harvey) [222000] (from that page) but b=512 has this nvalues for primes: 2, 6, 25, 1298, 11223 or  2048 6950,34044(Harvey 10/3) [91000] reserved Harvey but b=2048 is also prime for n=9 and n=26 and is the reservation active, seems not So, the data base is not correct and fully tested and I can't trust it at all. Another thing: Look at base=4: there're all 'normalized' forms for Riesel type of those values included as note. Who will do this? As mentioned before:  add only bases b<=100 with own page  add bases b>100 with own page where an entry can be found in the Top5000  remaining bases listed as table/CSV data The whole work will last for weeks to retest some data and collect links. The same for Cullen and others. If you want to help here: test for (all) bases the small nvalues if there're more missing entries.

This page, https://harvey563.tripod.com/GWlist.txt, is easier to read (and parse) than https://harvey563.tripod.com/General...dallPrimes.txt. I assume it is up to date. You can ignore any reservations from his pages. They are ancient. Old reservations (> 3 years) on the PrimeWiki can be removed. I think that managing reservations via a sticky thread in merseneeforum should be sufficient for most people. Maybe PrimeWiki can just point to that thread for those who want to make a reservation. I do not know if any other bases need primes to be normalized. It shouldn't be difficult to figure that out because as b increases there will be fewer normalized primes. IMO the only primes that need to be normalized are those found t tk5.org. I suspect that those are already captured on PrimeWiki. Anything else won't need notes and if we don't have history for when a prime was found, I am okay with that. I am okay if you want to put the bases > 100 into csv or txt format (like the current pages). Note that the Carol/Kynea page has hundreds of bases. Maybe b <= 1000 is better. It appears that you have some ideas how to tackle this. If you anything concrete that I can assist with, just let me know. As for the data not being accurate, that is the risk of being on a wiki where multiple people can update. It won't be perfect, but those who are diligent will work to correct mistakes.

I have updated the GW list.
Over 2300 with at least 10.000 digits. The additions are without name and date..it was to elaborate to fix it. https://pzktupel.de/Primetables/TableGW1.php

This is correct, I rewrote all tablenames for a better systematic .
Now it is for this: https://pzktupel.de/Primetables/TableWoodallGen.php

Are there public sieve files for any of the gcw bases?
Which software is most efficient in sieving gcw?

gcwsieve/gcwsievecl are the most efficient. I'm hoping that kar_bon (or someone else) can create stub pages easily (maybe automated). Once that is done I wouldn't mind spending the time filling in what I can.

Currently I'm inserting more Woodall bases into the Wiki, all b<50 are online now and some others.
If someone wants to reserve a special base, no problem: I can create it and the reservation can be filled in then (like for b=2). No further work for Cullen so far but should work the same for any base chosen.
