It is possibly to have email notification sent of any postings on a wiki, including what is posted, using FoxNotify and Fox and  a
GeneralNotifyList page. It does not need a Fox form to do the posting.
FoxNotify was developed form the PmWiki Notify script, and extended to
enable content being posted by email, HTML emails and more.
See http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/FoxNotify

This cannot email the diff of changes made, it could email the entire page content.

If one would use Fox forms, for instance a Fox comment form for visitors to add comments to  a page, FoxNotify could email the comment text, subject, author etc, according to how a mail form template is set up.
