[cross-project-issues-dev] Nighly snapshots for simrel and EPP Mars.2

Hi all,

Some users have been asking how to get into their IDE the patches for SWT on GTK. Although those patch are available and merged, it remains quite tricky for users of Mars.1 to retrieve them. Indeed, the only 2 alternatives I'm aware of are:
1. create a new install of Eclipse SDK from Platform 4.5 nightly build (and re-install everything they need)
2. Install the Platform feature from the 4.5 nightly build (which will most likely trigger remediation because of the version change in SWT bundle)
None of those 2 is very smooth.

So, for those users, the best thing would be to be able to point them to a nightly build of Mars.2 and EPP packages, containing the latest build of Eclipse 4.5.2. Then users could add this site to their available software sites, and try a "Check for updates"/
Is such a site available? Would it be possible to create it?

Cheers,
