Planning & Coordination for 2,2330L
We have a GNFS candidate from the Cunningham project at 207 digits:
[code]334377437706404684733884220732190564550147039308686365251932207592010868660163280944362994773042289837865752943086095333357861608005044927356022538834108845220872215597190097852981295940487497385774178731621[/code] A first guess for difficulty is 80100 coreyears for sieving, ~10 coreyears for the matrix. This is thinly based on a GNFS186 I'm currently doing with CADO, which requires ~4 coreyears for sieving; my historical data for smaller CADO tasks indicates matrix time is often 1/6th to 1/5th of the sieving time; 207 is 4 doublings tougher than 186, so ~16x as much work. I expect we'll oversieve this number enough to get matrix time down under 10 coreyears since a volunteer will be solving it on a single machine (that's me, unless fivemack has other ideas with his fastest machine). We have a C205 and C206 sieving on 16f at NFS@home presently, with Tom and I each committed to a matrix to finish the jobs. This provides us a natural comparison with CADO on this C207, the better to see how CADO compares to msieve for resource needs and time. swellman has scheduled a t65 on this number at yoyo; anyone eager to set an initial polyscore mark is invited to begin by reserving a coefficientrange on msieveGPU or CADO in this thread. If there is mediumterm interest in 2,1165+, we can coordinate poly select and such while we sieve 2,2330L. If CADO postprocessing proves unwieldy on resource needs or we find insufficient forumuser resources to sieve it, we can always send it to frmky and NFS@home for sieving. While ECM and poly select is going, we need to collectively decide whether to teamsieve with CADO, or send it to NFS@home. I *strongly* prefer a team sieve, for a few reasons: To learn how well CADO scales for future GNFS220+ tasks, because NFS@home already proved it can handle a number this size but we haven't, and because teamwork in this forum is fun. To decide it's worth proceeding as a CADOteamsieve, we ought to collect pledges from interested parties in units of coreyears. Sieve tasks will be handed out as a 4threaded job, using either 33.3GB of memory if I=15, or 1214GB if I=16. (We can select any fixed number of threads, and that number can be different for the I=15 server versus I=16) So, if you have a 16GB or greater machine, please estimate how many coreyears you can pledge for I=16 and complete within calendar 2019 (figure we'll start by 1 June, so 68 months for sieving). If you have 616GB ram, and wish to contribute, please pledge coreyears for I=15. We'll testsieve to find out how much less efficient I=15 is versus I=16; the CADO team factored RSA704 (GNFS212) entirely on I=15, though they noted the suboptimal parameters meant it took them 500 coreyears (eek!). This job is half as hard as GNFS212, so a wild guess is that I=15 work will be half as efficient as I=16 work. If we get pledges of I = 16 years + 0.5 * I=15 years = 80 or more, we can do this as a team sieve. Once we have a polynomial we can further refine this estimate via testsieving. 
I'm willing to put 20 cores toward this project, so I pledge 10 coreyears I=16.
I'll use this thread to track pledges: [code]vbcurtis I=16 10 coreyears swellman I=16 2 coreyears RichD I=16 1 coreyear lukerichards I=16 2 coreyears ET I=16 4 coreyears fivemack I=16 30 coreyears Total: 49 coreyears[/code] Edit: Both swellman and I pledged a number of cores for as long as it takes; I'm using 6 months as a calendartime goal for the sieving. Fivemack's cores begin 1 July, so I scaled his down a bit to reflect a bit less time available. 
I will pledge 4 cores for the duration.
Also reserving c5 < 1M for poly search using msieve. (I’m assuming we are not searching at all for a sextic.) 
C207 CADO poly select 01M
Reserving c5 < 1M for poly search using CADO. (Later on I'll take 01M for a CADO sextic, just to see the difference. It would be great to have somebody testsieve topc5 vs topc6).

I'll surely testsieve a few top polys, at worst in 16f GGNFS but likely the best two will get testsieved in CADO to see if relative speed changes.

C207 score
@swellman
When you get to it, could you please post anything above 1e15? I am stuck at 7.68e16, and we are trying to get to 1.6e15. Quite probably my parameters are way off.

I'll pledge 4cores at half time. I guess that amounts to 1core year. This will work good for me since sometimes I have a box waiting 12, 24, 36 hours for sieving to complete at NFS@home and I can point it at the CADO server for a quick set of WUs (in addition to my pledge).
I'll start msieveGPU at c5=4M tomorrow when I get home. 
Minimum 2 core years from me.
I've never used the software mentioned, but I propose to get started on one of my home computers and probably later devote some Google Cloud credit to it
