No errors for a while now, and download speeds from jcenter.bintray.com also seem to improve and are now around the usual numbers. Build Cache is still advised to protect against similar events in the future and to improve the android dependency download speed in general.

The bintray issue is resolved now and we don't see errors anymore, but download speeds are still slower than usual. The previously mentioned Build Cache can help with that, and we're still monitoring the system.
