well, these exponents were assigned to the respective users first and if any one of these exponents is prime, we do not wish to e unfair to them and take away their chance of discovering the prime. However, fair does not mean waiting forever and George usually releases exponents that have not had any work done or are being worked on very very slowly, once every 6 months or so. He will probably be doing a release of these numbers too. But in the meanwhile I hope no one wil take it upon himself/herself to complete them as that is "poaching" and we all know that "poaching is very bad" :)
