I own a GitHub organisation and project. Unknown people (out of the organization) sometimes edit my project's wiki, which is cool.

How can I receive a notification when someone edits my project's GitHub wiki?
I "watch" my project but don't receive any notification.

Preferably via email or RSS/Atom.


I think that you only have to have the project watched. It should send you notifications when anything such as issues and the WIKI are updated.


As the updated question states, watching does not give you updates on the Wiki.

However, this question has been asked on StackOverflow: How can you track or be notified of changes to GitHub wikis? A couple of approaches are given including an RSS feed & one based on Service Hooks.

The RSS feed is easy to use. The URL is not exposed anywhere but is built up like this:

  • I am watching the project already :-/ I edited my question to add this information.

  • I probably should have realised that anyway. Please see my update. Jun 1 '15 at 7:37

    That StackOverflow had come up in my previous web searches. It asks for service hooks, which excludes simpler solutions. There must be something easier than using service hooks.

  • Is there a problem using the RSS feed? Jun 1 '15 at 8:16
  • Nice find! Unfortunately github.com/aegif/CmisSync/wiki.atom does not seem to be a valid feed, it breaks my RSS feed reader and does not validate: validator.w3.org/feed/… I sent a bug report to Github about that.
