Some wikis offer a revision history and a search function, e.g.
most openspf.org pages are based on a Wiki, which is a fork of
"Usemod". That offers a news feed (RSS) for "recent changes".
The IAOC wiki is broken at the moment (at least from my POV),
but the IESG wiki using the same software has similar features,
check out <http://tools.ietf.org/group/iesg/trac/timeline>
At the end of this page you find the feed URL.

It's all there (for the IESG wiki)

Fom the index I saw that a page FolkloreDrinks should exist,
and when I input that in the search form at the top I arrive
on a page with that title.

IMO redundant if there's a news feed. You could watch it
with a "google alert", and let the "alert" post to blogger
readable as pure HTML (i.e. without feed reader or ugly
straight forward if you simply bookmark "recent changes".
