I don't think we will get much spam as long as we still registration for
editing the wiki. If some spammer registers an account, banning will
also be easy.
The benefits from opening up the wiki will be much bigger. Everyone can
contribute to the documentation without creating tickets for it, sending

I read the wiki edits as RSS feed (from the timeline). Although it does
not contain diffs, it links to the changed page.
But I don't think we need to spam -dev. If we really decide to send
mails, these should go to -changes with some [wiki] prefix. So others
not wanting to get these diffs can easily set up a filter for it.
