There is a configuration issue which is causing edits by council
members to not appear in the recentchanges feed.  See all the bold 'b'
annotations in



http://wiki.linux.org.au/Special:ListGroupRights section "council"
which includes "Be treated as an automated process (bot)"

I suspect you want council members to be able to avoid the spam/flood
controls.  I doubt that is necessary, but if it is I suggest setting
up a flood flag which council members can grant themselves if/when
they are doing mass edits.
