On Special:Statistics folks can download something claiming to be a full database backup of the Wiki, at the moment this is about 5 MB as 7z archive, unpacked about 230 MB, or 4,299,965 lines in a text editor. Files (images incl. SVGs, videos, OGG audio, etc.) are not included.
IOW, it is too big as forum or HRM attachment and unsuited for GitHub. But it could be a good idea to keep a copy on files.freeciv.org, maybe updated annually by anybody who cares about it and has whatever rights it takes for uploads. Requesting a fresh dump on the Wiki requires Wiki admin rights, worked for me, the old state before January 26 was June 2017, so now it roughly corresponds to 2.5.10.
You can get help here if Freeciv doesn't start on your computer, or if you keep getting fatal errors while playing etc.
