Let's gather a list of current options (feel free to edit this answer):

  • whodidit has a nice interface, but might miss changesets if they only touch relations for example.
  • osm filter (see Malenki's answer) uses heuristics to weed out uninteresting changesets, but the heuristics have false-positives.
  • ITO world is usefull too, but it requires a login and can be a bit hard to navigate for our purpose.
  • osm.org's history tab suffers from worldwide edits that get included when they shouldn't.
  • OWL (see Richard's answer) is the traditional tool, currently offline but should come back.
  • The new history tab doesn't yet do notification, but its backend should allow for that, and it is slated to become the new official change-notification service.
  • The newest active osm feed shows new contributors, who often make a few mistakes when they start.
  • osm qa feeds helps create rss feeds for many tools

All those tools work by letting you subscribe to a RSS feed. The wiki also has a list of monitoring tools.

It appears these tools let you know what's changed in your area of interest. Are there any tools that notify me only when a feature I've touched is edited?

Here you can drop the link of the osm.org history page of the area you want to monitor. The result is a RSS-feed without the big changesets bots and some mappers cause.

I know this is an old thread, but this does not work for me. I paste the url of the history page but when clicking the "GetFiltered RSS URL" button I always get the message "Could not fetch requested URL".

Currently you best bet is likely to use OSMCha
