Timing of Plugin updates from Github

How often does the system poll Github for updates to plugins? Is it a poll or is there some other mechanism that decides to check for a new version?

I’ve been working on this plugin and sometimes it feels like MB sees the new version quickly and other times, I’m left wondering if it’s doing anything.

It’s a poll, currently every 2 hours. If that isn’t often enough I can bump it up.

I’d also like to have a special page for plug-in authors where they can see registered plug-ins and refresh them. Something like that seems like it would help.

I don’t think it’s necessary to shorten the interval for most usage.

I only notice it while developing a plugin. Even that isn’t a huge deal since I can copy the changes into the web-based editor and try them out I suppose.
