I assume you mean "finding at least one factor of MM127 and prove the number composite".
Comlpletely factoring would be rather difficult...

I know that the current distribution is ideal for GIMPS (which  different from similar projects  doesn't put away a k once a prime is found)  nevertheless, that "3" disturbs me...
BTW, it has decreased to 2!

Don't forget the error rate of 1.5%. There are about 400500 exponents left that had a faulty first test (but we don't know yet which ones they are).

MM127 proven prime. LL testing MM127
How about changing "MM127 factored" to "MM127 proven prime"?

Change the sign or command to MM127 proven prime.
I'm sure that it will be the VERY last of the four that the milestones will occur in order.

Factoring Depth.
It seems very unlikely that someone would successfully find a factor for MM127.
