I thought about this as well, I think its just a symptom of "privacy policy fatigue", how many of these notifications does the average person using a handful of services receive in a year? The velocity of updates to them seems to be increasing. Also quantifying the impact or intent of the changes is not always obvious and clear.

Can we crawl privacy policies and commit each change into a repo -- and maintain this as a public resource?

There was a website doing this a few years ago, it showed diffs for privacy policies and terms of service. You could also get email notifications when a site changed. However, it shut down some years ago.

Unfortunately I can't remember the site's name, or find it in my bookmarks, sorry.
