      I didn't try it, but this should work:

      :au BufWritePost * diffupdate

      Why? Mostly the diff is updated when making changes. When it gets out
      of sync you need to invoke ":diffupdate", but that is not directly
      related to writing the file. One might as well want this for ":!ls" or
      ":help". At least I wouldn't want a user to write the file to get the
      diffs updated.

      You are not really successful until someone claims he sat
      beside you in school.
