Probably better asked on epp-dev list, but I'll tell you what I know.

To get a "nightly" EPP repo, you would have to use "last successful" repo on Hudson, which has a URL of
https://hudson.eclipse.org/packaging/job/mars.epp-tycho-build/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/org.eclipse.epp.packages/archive/repository/

I always forget, and have to start at the EPP home page [1] to get the right links, which still take some "drilling down" to find the repository, instead of the packages. And, for Neon, you'd just have to "type over" the 'mars' part of URL and use 'neon' instead.

BUT THEN, you would have to be sure what you wanted was actually in there. I have not, for example, updated the Eclipse and Equinox contribution past our Mars.1 release.
That is, until just now. :) So should get an 'update' in a few hours for you to try out. And this was using our Platform build from M20151209-1000. I would never contribute a "nightly" to EPP (we do not even have "nightlies" of our Mars.2 stream), and I do not believe EPP has any concept of a true "nightly". It is simply rebuilt whenever anyone makes a new contribution.

As always, caution is urged and these builds would not be for anyone using them "for production".  But, otherwise, it's great to get the early testing.

Hope this helps,

Thanks a lot David (for the URL and for updating Eclipse contribution).
