But Confluence especially, a great wiki, requires discipline to avoid a mess but all wikis do.

If you’re ever in a similar situation, try cloning over a different ISP or a VPN first. It’s pretty rare for a service like bitbucket to have a catastrophic failure like this without it being a downstream problem.
It's bitbucket. It is actually extremely common.
So to this day, I keep having to clone locally and then rsync --partial the .git folder over the slow link. Surely it should not be an insurmountable problem to not throw away a partial clone, but instead offer to resume at a reasonable checkpoint?
Atlassian replaced it with Slack which was just bought by Salesforce, so who knows maybe they will revive Hipchat now.
Not before migrating to their own Hipchat successor / Slack clone, Stride, which was infinitely worse than both in every way. The product and IP was sold to Slack for, rumour has it, $1.

In fact, all of Atlassian's products feel gross, it's all horribly slow. Jira's slowness alone probably cuts my productivity by about 20%.
I have heard of exfiltration in the military context, as in "getting back your own stuff if it's harder than normal for some reason".
Like Saving Private Ryan is about exfiltrating Private Ryan. Or you would exfiltrate a unit stuck behind enemy lines.
That meaning makes sense here.
e.g. when the customer is using adblock to evade surveillances, or files are deliberately isolated from the Internet.
That's incorrect. Someone with legitimate access to data can still exfiltrate it, which means to covertly remove it to outside the organization.
For example, someone in HR might have payroll data they can properly access. However, when they send that data home over a covert channel, that is exfiltration.
See, it's almost as if Bitbucket were trying to keep you from getting your data and you had to "hack it out".
