I've e-mailed the administrator of the wiki so hopefully he can block
those users. It's a constant battle and I don't think there are any easy
That reverting seems to be being done by some automated script bot. The
two similarly named accounts you list were even fighting each other over
a few pages - install:start for example.
I suspect this particular script is only capable of reverting back one
edit. A few months back I removed spam and improved a page as a single
edit and the script just reverted to the last spam page.
On some pages, I've just made two changes: first to revert the spam
and then add some arbitrary changes. I'm hoping that doing it as two
edits will stop it reverting the spam at least for a short while.
