In an environment where we have built RPM packages for the themes and plugins we need, now we want to automate the update process so we don't need to go into the webinterface or manually download an unzip new versions to update our plugins.
Therefore we need - independently of wordpress core code - to get update information. I dug as deep into the code now to see that the script wp-includes/update.php does a call to
to get this information. But it's a bit cryptical to me to see the exact format of such a call - expecting I could call some URL with parameters like plugin name and version and get information about a new version being available or not, in the best case with the url to the new version.
Is there any documentation about the format of data the api site accepts as input and will return?
