Hi Yury, I saw some excitement from people regarding this edit. However, I for one have been hesitant to make wider announcements about this. My personal concern is that, although I have every reason to believe that the contributor is who others claim that she is, the contributor did not self publish information that unambiguously communicated her identity in a public space in the Wikiverse.
ENWP can be highly protective of contributors' off wiki identities when contributors have not self published that information. ENWP can be so protective that there is friction within the community about whether paid conflict of interest editors are getting an unreasonable degree of protection. In this case, the contributor's username is highly suggestive of her identity. I regret if the caution seems to be excessive, but there are reasons to be cautious about announcing information about other Wikimedia contributors who have implied and not outright stated information about their identities. I hope that in the near future this contributor will provide a small amount of further self disclosure about her off wiki identity, such as by simply writing her name on her userpage, and at that time I would be much more comfortable celebrating this edit. Again, I regret if this approach feels excessively cautious.
