How about making a read-only copy of those repositories on the OSU servers
and redirecting "https://code.ros.org/svn" there? That way the information
will not be lost and the wiki will not get broken.

Anyone wanting to modify one of those packages to make a bug fix, for
example, would need to copy it somewhere else before making the change,
then re-release it from there. Some of them might even remember to update
rosdistro accordingly.
