No, because I don't remember the location offhand. But, you can do what 
I did: Start with the plugins code in the admin dir and trace it to find 
the point where it's querying wordpress.org, then insert a break point 
and dump out what it sends and receives.

I should probably point out to any devs developing a super secret new 
plugins and themes: Your project isn't really secret - some people know 
about everything running on your private dev box if it has an outbound 
connection to the Internet.  So keep that in mind when you're working 
for clients that have strict privacy policies, most large corps do.
