F-Droid build failure

Before asking the F-Droid guys I wanted to check here if anyone understands the cause for the following error and if it is actionable on our side or not:

All builds finished

:app:preReleaseBuild FAILED

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

Could not resolve all files for configuration ':app:releaseCompileClasspath'.
> Could not find runtime.aar (android.arch.lifecycle:runtime:1.0.3).
  Searched in the following locations:

Seems that version is only available in google’s maven repos. We’ll probably have to cut a new tag and make a new release for fdroid to pick it up. Yet I am surprised we ourselves managed to build ok.
