Yes--when we finish the sieve and post an announcement of the sieve file's availability, I was going to go into more detail about this. The only requirement of using the sieve file is that you include NPLB alongside any other projects when reporting primes; and we'd also prefer if you could send us your residuals at the end, since it will save us some work down the road when we doublecheck this range.

Note that for now, you can of course still keep reporting primes without NPLB; it's only once you start using the sieve file that the stipulation takes effect.
