Of course I would be honored if SSDF would decide to test Aristarch, but I don't
know if I can influence their decision.

Thanks for your compliments! My personal opinion is that there is a chance that
Aristarch is the best amateur, but that is far from sure, and the others are not
sleeping. Especially long games are not tested.

Besides, I hope that someone is interested in finding better engine parameters,
but with version 3.9.68 I received only one single proposal. Every single UCI
parameter is a good candidate to try for improvement - especially combinations
of parameter changes are interesting (e. g. singular extensions instead of
single response extensions).
