You just need to try a few times. Once every few attempts it suddenly works. And 
then you can get at the "source" of the page by clicking the download as plain 
text link at the bottom. That's how I did backup the contents of the 
libdivecomputer wiki. Those plaintext files (markdown format I believe) can then 
hopefully be imported somehow in github wiki. At least that's my plan for 
migrating the libdivecomputer wiki.

If someone knows or finds a better way, let me know!
