Default LMH Forum

I'm just curious - why LMH forum is under "Other Projects" and not under "GIMPS"? Doesn't LMH actually contribute to the GIMPS project?

Well, there are two projects which are often confused. One project is the search for the Mersenne Primes and one project is for running a server assigning the Mersenne exponents to be tested. Obvious LMH is part of the first project, and also obvious, we are not part of the second project. Of course, if the server would be able to assign us ranges of choice many of us would settle for that. I doubt though if it is worth the extra hassle of desiging, programming and administering it.
