I manage a small number of wordpress sites on different servers, and so have developed a script to keep them all up to date. Essentially, I download the code to my own computer, and the script then uploads it (actually rsyncs it) to the different sites.
My issue is that updating the plugins is still a chore, since I have to download each updated plugin, which takes several mouse-clicks per plugin.
But wordpress "knows" which plugins need updating AND where to download the new code. Is there any way I could get wordpress to simply display a list of links to the download sites for the plugins that need updating?
