Thanks for that. It works, and I've successfully made the first updates 
on the wiki.

However, I'm puzzled as to how you found this out. I had indeed also 
used the "raw" links before, but in my case these links contained the 
git commit ID in the location where your URL shows "master". Manually 
editing the URLs to replace the commit ID by "master" does seem to 
produce what looks like a persistent link to the current version though.

Cheers, Jan
