I have successfully built the 20160606 image several times before (using already two patches from here: edison-yocto-docker/edison-source at master · Squonk42/edison-yocto-docker · GitHub for libraries having the wrong MD5 or now inexistent) but now it seems it is impossible to fetch icedtea-2.1.3.tar.gz from http://gnu.wildebeest.org/download/source/icedtea-2.1.3.tar.gz
The error at compilation time is the following:
WARNING: Failed to fetch URL http://icedtea.wildebeest.org/download/source/icedtea-2.1.3.tar.gz;name=iced, attempting MIRRORS if available

Has anyone found a solution to compile anyway and bypass this or maybe not include java altogether?
Intel... really, do something at one point. I love your product but this is soooooo frustrating to develop on it when obviously it looks like no-one is in charge of maintaining the software. We already needed two patches made by the community to compile the image and now this ?
How can you still write this on your site:
"Run the following commands to build the Intel® Edison board image:
source oe-init-build-env ../build_edison/
bitbake edison-image u-boot"
It's been month it doesn't work anymore. Where are you guys ?
