Add a Git-backed uploader to support update sites on, say, GoogleCode

GoogleCode supports adding multiple repositories per project and browsing them directly. See  http://code.google.com/p/objectify-appengine/source/browse/?repo=maven for an example.

Since Google used this feature themselves, it is not an abuse of their service but intended usage.

We can use the same mechanism to offer an update site, using JGit.

Side note: GoogleCode also allows Mercurial and Subversion repositories. We might want to support those modes via  http://hg4j.com/ and  http://svnkit.com/ (Open Source libraries to work with Mercurial and Subversion), too.
