http://download.wikimedia.org/backup-index.html contains a list of the 
individual dumps. For historical reasons, we are doing our tests with the 
bavarian wiki, but you can use any dump. The bavarian is nice, because I can

It will output the erlang terms to the command line. Be carefull, this dump is 
already ~500MB in size.
