base.bbclass: introduce OE source mirror network as last resort for do_fetch
Updating recipes and checksums.ini for vanishing upstream hosts or simple restructuring can quickly become a chore for OE devs if taken seriously. The OE user experience suffers severely when at any given point in time 4 to 5 recipes on average fail do_fetch for a simple image. The solution is for OE to provide its own caching of upstream sources. is a swarm of possibly incomplete source mirrors provided by the community and load-balanced via DNS round robin. They act as a first line of defense and lower bandwidth load on melo which hosts The melo mirror aims to have a complete copy of free-to-publish sources used by the current branch.
