MoinMoin (used by the Debian wiki) offers the ability to subscribe to
individual wiki pages and to ranges of pages using regexes. It will
send you emails containing diffs of changes to pages you have
There is also the option of using the RecentChanges RSS feed if you
care about changes across the whole of the wiki. The RSS feed is
slightly buggy though.
