It is not clear from the report if Wikidata changes are not shown at all or if they are only empty.

I think it's better to exclude these changes from the feed, until we have better integration (e.g. support to filter them, and format much nicer).

Once we have proper support, we might want the default to be only include 'external' changes via an explicit parameter, like done with the special pages.

I am worried that we are getting less visibility for Wikidata changes there while we really really need more :/

we would need at least a bit more detail on what changed for these entries to be meaningful. right now, they appear as empty changes, can't filter them, etc.

<p></p> <table class='diff diff-contentalign-left'> <tr style='vertical-align: top;'> <td colspan='1' style="background-color: white; color:black; text-align: center;">← Older revision</td> <td colspan='1' style="background-color: white; color:black; text-align: center;">Revision as of 16:27, 2 February 2015</td> </tr><tr><td colspan='2' style='text-align: center;'><div class="mw-diff-empty">(No difference)</div> </td></tr></table>

agree it would be nice to have wikidata changes in the feed if they would be more meaningful / relevant to the page.

also the diff link isn't really correct:

http://wikidata-client/index.php?title=Maurice_Gibb&diff=9892&oldid=9892

(I think this should be a link to the diff in the repo)
