In my project we control the plug-ins through the "Manage Configuration" possibility. Downloaded plu-ins etc. are loaded thorugh an extension point from a file location (managed by SVN)|
This has proven to be a reliable way of making sure all developers in a team share the same configuration.
I am now updating our project to Juno, and even after enabling the "Classic Update" in preferences, the menu item Help->Software Update->Manage Configuration is missing.
It also seems to be missing in the documentation for juno at http://help.eclipse.org/juno/index.jsp

Adding things to /features and /plugins will work ... sometimes, but it is definitely not recommended, not supported, and can break on the slightest change.|
What you want can be done with p2. When I unzip a new eclipse installation, I run the director to add all of the other features I need. ex:
-application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director \
There are tools available that can provide one repo that points to a bunch of other repos (one stop shopping), tools that can collect the features and plugins you need from multiple existing repos into a local (to your company) reference repo, and tools that can take existing groups of features/plugins and publish them as a local repo.
