6^383+1 by GNFS is complete. Thanks!
I think the present sieving is sufficient, and we're getting to Q values large enough to get diminishing returns; so please don't reserve any more ranges unless you have access to gnfslasieve4I15e, and in that case try things in the 20M25M range.
I think we need 200 million relations; we get slightly under two relations per Q on average, so reservations should be within the range 25M  140M (initially I estimated slightly over two relations per Q, so an upper limit of 125M, but the dropoff of relations with Q is a bit faster than I expected). Reservations Code:

I should have an upload mechanism in place by New Year  it requires a friend of mine to fiddle about with the filesystem configuration on his colocated machine, which will have to wait until after Christmas, and then you can upload the files by FTP. Until then, if you have web space that you can put files on, I can pull them down without trouble.

The 86M100M range is finished (looks like no one else is using the Grid5000 clusters over Christmas!), may I take 100M120M as well? If that's ok, I won't take more than this range as not to jeopardize the collaborative character of this effort.

That's quite spectacular performance. If I'd known there were resources on that scale available ...
[I'd have done exactly what I'm doing now  what I don't have is the parallel software for a trulylarge matrix] There's no virtue in not applying available resources; go ahead with 100M  120M. If you have resources of this scale, I presume 7269 has already succumbed ... do you feel like sieving 2^8411 ? (2x^6+1;x2^140, sp=50M lp=31, q_alg=25M175M ought to suffice ...)

The problem is predicting availability. Yesterday and today there was almost no one else using the cluster in Bordeaux. That's about 400 Opteron cores I can use. If I use nodes at other locations as well it might be 1000 or more, enough to sieve a decent size project in a day. However, if other users start running their own jobs again I might not get an awful lot of cpu time for weeks. It's a gamble.
I'm not using those machines for NFS very much yet, mostly because I couldn't do all the postprocessing work. But if someone else is willing to handle the messy part... 7,269 is sieved and the matrix is running. I'm preparing 3,533 for sieving at the moment. Both are easy enough that I can do the postprocessing with the CWI tools I'm familiar with. The sq < 120M for 6^383+1 are finished as well, I'm trying to think of somewhere to put them for download. If you'll do the filtering and matrix and only need the relations for a bigger project, I'd gladly join and see how much cpu time I can grab. 2,841 is fine with me. Does it need more ECM first? Alex

Well, I've got a quadcore on order, and might as well go for 8GB memory for it  there are two 2G sticks sitting on my desk at work  at which point 2,841 shouldn't be an impossible filtering and matrix job, though the relations will be a cumbersome amount of data to move around. I don't know how much it's been ECMed, if you're in a position to start ECM tonight and switch to sieving in the morning, that might be the right combination.
Go for it; at worst I'll have to organise another phalanx of mersenneforum people in 2008 to mop up such relations as couldn't be done over xmas on the Grid.

This is now set up; instructions in the head post. Remember to set 'binary' when uploading compressed files. If you have any problems PM me. I have already got 86120 and 42.555, as well (obviously) as the regions I've sieved.

Should we do any line sieving using msieve?

Line sieving might not be a bad idea. I'm not at all sure about parameter choice; (10..90)thpercentile range of A and 5thpercentile range of B is a=10^10 .. 10^10, b=0..3000, but I've not done line sieving at all so I don't know how long that would take.

A single line should take maybe a half hour, though very small b (< 100) could take a really long time. The siever will switch dynamically between two and three large primes, and to save time will perform a lot of precomputation up front. I've tested the code with 28bit large primes but using 31bit large primes could chew up a lot of memory. Note also that when the polynomial skew is very large then a huge portion of the relations found will be duplicated by the lattice siever, if b is chosen too large Feel free to PM me any generated logfiles if you'd like me to verify that things are behaving as expected.
