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

Select Archive</Archive> and proceed to select the zipped archive on your filesystem.

Note: Please see bug bug 268210 for issues related to provisioning from these repos for your PDE target. Currently, you can't provision from these repos in PDE because the repository browser doesn't show categories.
