So I am thinking of deploying the .target artifacts to a maven repo that is accessible from the CI environment. Is that the way to go?

I tried that for a while but then got annoyed by the additional mvn deploy step in between. It might be ok if your target platform doesn't update in a while. But with four Eclipse releases a year and a few other tools I have quite a lot updates to do. Also I have a few projects which need a small variation here and there. Thus, I started with that setup initially but ended up with Git submodules. I know, submodules come with their own fun. But at least the process of doing a quick target platform update and consuming it somewhere else got quicker. :) 

FWIW, I can highly recommend the Target Platform DSL editor for generating .target files:
