Java collections were typically bootstrapped by using older packages

CentOS bootstraps SCLs by using external repositories with prebuilt
RPMs, like this one:
http://cbs.centos.org/koji/externalrepoinfo?extrepoID=11

Unfortunately I cannot see what’s inside this repository or some
siblings I've tried (access denied). Does it basically contain the
same packages as the final sclo repo or are there some hand-tweaked
packages aimed at getting through a bootstrap?

I don't know, I don't have access either. Bug I guess these could be
RHSCL packages.

It used copr builds for bootstrapping (rebuilt twice in cbs to get rid of any external consequences). The packages should be probably still accessible:
https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/hhorak/devtoolset-4-rebuild-bootstrap/

But since we now have centos builds, I don't see reason to not use those for bootstrapping.

I guess that bootstrapping was a manual process with lots of dirty
hacks and workarounds ;). Is this a good impression of how it went?

Oh yes :) And it still required using pre-built binaries from older
releases or products.
