With 3.5M6, there are zipped repos for the RCP, CVS, JDT and PDE (Runtime and SDK) zipped p2 repos available with each build.

These zipped repos can be either used to provision your install or used to provision your PDE target.

Provisioning your install from a zipped repo

To provision your install, select Help->Install New Software and select Add to add a new repository
