The standard way to backup a Mediawiki install is to export to XML: 

http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Export

At which point you can transform it as easily as any other structured 
document and then re-import.

Given that the pages on the PostgreSQL wiki about CVS and Git have been 
the most up to date resources on those topics available since shortly 
after their respective creation dates, I'm not sure what one could 
criticize about them as an information source in this area.
