The best way to understand what is the dropins folder is to read
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Getting_Started

in general this was added in Eclipse 3.4 to give you a simple way to
add/remove plugins and features by adding and removing folders to this
parent folder.

I am not sure that it is the best practice for update though ;)
