Automated install process


We have an automated process that creates new WP sites for us and installs a standard list of plugins and I've been asked to include the WPMU Dashboard plugin and two WPMU plugins as well. I, therefore, have a couple of questions:

1) Is there a download link I can use to download the latest version of the dashboard via a CLI tool, like wget or curl? The download link for the dashboard under the account here requires you to be logged in.

2) Can I download the required plugins from anywhere? It would appear that you can only install them via the dashboard, but if possible I would prefer them to be automatically included in our process so they don't get forgotten about.
