Default Base 6

I noticed the team sieve for Sierpinski Base 6. Why are you not doing the combined sieve, Sierpinski AND Riesel? There are not that many Riesel base 6 candidates left.

The Riesel base 6 candidates were all privately reserved for a while preceding the start of the Sierpinski base 6 PRP drive (which later spawned the team sieve). Also, there was (and still is) a somewhat large disparity between the testing limit of Riesel base 6 and Sierpinski base 6. Hence, we only included the Sierpinski side in the team sieve.

If the Riesel side is eventually caught up to the Sierpinski side, though, then we would definitely consider combining it into the Sierpsinki team sieve.

I asked Karsten to put a priority on Riesel base 6 a while back as well as the odd-n and even-n conjectures that he has reserved.

He's now on vacation for 6-8 weeks. I guess we'll need to wait until he gets back.

I'd really like to make a team drive out of Riesel base 6 like we did Sierp base 6.
