Related: Moving GitHub Wiki

The GitHub API v4 does not include Wikis. The GitLab API v4 does include Wikis.

Thus, to duplicate a GitHub repo AND the GitHub Wiki benefits from a little scripting help.

An example solution is in GitEDU. This requires manually clicking to enable the new wiki via a web browser for each repo wiki.
