Comment (by dd32):

 Since there's no actual need for it to be hosted on api.wordpress.org, and
 it's mostly static after a chat we've decided that it'll be better to just
 leave it on downloads.wordpress.org.

 I've moved it to a cleaner URL structure which is easier to construct and
 we can cache/route differently in the future if need be.
 The new URL is: `https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin-checksums/exploit-
 scanner/1.5.2.json`, or `https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin-
 checksums/$plugin/$version.json` the `.json` is optional too.

 This lacks a version in the URL structure, however, in the event we need
 to version it in the future, we'll be able to add support to serve those
 as `https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin-checksums/1.1/exploit-
 scanner/1.5.2.json` instead.

 @schlessera final check, anything else needed before this starts rolling
 out to all plugin slugs?
