for the record, as more folks shift to travis, it will probably be worth thinking harder about how to manage dependencies for both maven deployment and update sites, the bootstrap script has some hardcoded stuff that is bitrotting and i believe there is some redundancy in package fetching

@kephale Definitely. My goal is to migrate the bootstrapping to instead use mvn -Dimagej.app.directory rather than pulling down the state of an update site.
The reason for the hardcoded stuff was to ensure a working base state before updating... there is little reason to update those versions often. Though Johannes used to do so occasionally, and now I never do.

gotcha, the mvn w/ directory param solution sounds awesome

@kephale Keep buggin' me to finish that. This comes down to fully solving fiji/fiji#39, which I have pursued on and off for years now.
(and fiji/fiji#37 and fiji/fiji#38, intrinsically related work)
