If it is more appropriate for another stackexchange site, please feel free to move the question there.

    $\begingroup$ For what it's worth, that edit seems to have been made by someone in the city of Béziers in France (though could be through a VPN, or via Tor, or...). Others may be able to glean information from that fact. $\endgroup$ – David Roberts Dec 28 '18 at 6:56

    $\begingroup$ Properly speaking, though, asking whether or not this is a suitable question to ask on MO means this could go on meta. $\endgroup$ – David Roberts Dec 28 '18 at 7:17

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is no longer relevant (the question asked whether some information, now confirmed, is reliable) $\endgroup$ – YCor Dec 28 '18 at 19:00

The answer seems to be yes (from private sources close to Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer).
