edit: I realized it's obviously visible from the stats if someone completed that range after a factor was found.


Ok, I can see how that makes sense for the goal of finding primes. But isn't it a problem for the stats? At least in case of TF. From mersenne.ca it will seem as if that range was checked while actually it wasn't fully done. It's noticable when looking at the factors, but not whether or not someone else already redid that range to complete it.



On the other hand, ECM will in all likelyhood find that any potentially missed factor sooner or later anyway.
