The big difference between watching and starring a project comes down to notifications.
If you are watching a repository, you will receive notifications for all discussions — project issues, pull requests, comments on commits and any other comments. If you’re not watching a repo you’ll just receive notification for the discussions you participate in.
Go to GitHub settings
You'll see this:
☑ Automatically watch repositoiries
When you’re given push access to a repository, automatically receive notifications for it.
If you uncheck or untick that box you should now have to manually watch repositories that are added by your joined organisation if they've also given you push access.

The instructions at http://www.tekgrl.com/accepting-google-calendar-invites-to-a-non-gmail-account/ worked for me, taking into the account the comments at the end. Here's a summary:

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 ...

I think you'll find that Google Calendar sends the reminder to the Google account that owns the calendar.

It's Facebooks way of getting you to use more Facebook. Which in your case, failed miserably.

The page notifications do appear under your personal-profile globe icon if you set using your page as you personally. If you return to using your page as your page, the notifications will appear only if you use the whole Facebook as your page.
As of 2019
Go to this page, scroll down to the Other Notifications section, and make sure the option Replies to my comments is checked. Note that there's no submit button - changes are saved the moment they are made, so simply checking the option and closing the page will do.
