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.

I am actually really not in favor of doing that now. The only reason was to support ImageJ users without the ability to support themselves a server, or write themselves an uploader. But now that we have personal update sites, it would only distract myself from addressing more pressing needs.

This does not mean that the goal stated in this issue makes no sense, of course. It only means that this developer is not going to implement it.
