Demonstrate adding findsecbugs to spotbugs. This commit is a demonstration and is not intended to be merged as-is.

With no changes, findsecbugs reports several findings for this plugin. The MD5 warning is common in Jenkins and exists in core. In this case, it is used for tracking and not for security so it can be suppressed though even here it would be better to eventually upgrade to a better algorithm.

The PATH_TRAVERSAL_IN findings here are particularly interesting. These relate to CVE-2019-10320 from Jenkins Security Advisory 2019-05-21. At this time, these findings are only used for migrating old data and do not represent real vulnerabilities. As we approach a year since the release of the fix, we should consider removing the migration code to remove the suppression. If we had run findsecbugs on this plugin prior to 2019-05-21 it would have detected a valid security vulnerability.

My plan is to add findsecbugs at the plugin pom after sufficient testing and communication. At that point, it would make sense to add the suppressions, but not the pom file changes from this PR.
