Accessing old wiki revisions' markdown source

Is there a way to access old revision markdown source via web?

I have tried experimenting with https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wiki/\<user\>/\<repo\>/\<file\>.md, no luck so far…

To my knowledge, there isn’t a way to access the source of an old wiki revision via the web. You can access the old rendered version, but not the source (except in diff form by comparing two revisions but that doesn’t show you everything). If you want to access the source, you can clone the wiki to your local machine and access the old source revisions that way.
