These xml files are provided by scm/manifest repository, which is unfortunately 
outdated. The build fails, because of few reasons:
1. there are new repositories, which were not added to scm/manifest
2. there is new RPM repository (Tizen Base), which is used by all profiles - 
there is no information about Tizen Base packages in other profiles
3. some packages were moved (so git paths in manifests are invalid)

Fortunately I think it should be possible to workaround this issue. You will 
find similar manifests published in every snapshot on every profile. I've 
attached little script which you can use to merge both Base and Common 
manifests. Usage:
./manifest-merge.sh base.xml common.xml common > projects.xml

Manifest for Base is here: 

for Common:

There are 2 problems we are aware of:
- mdnsresponer git path was changed, this change will be reflected in next 
snapshot, so please check if path is platform/upstream/mdnsresponder
- model-config-xu3 git path was also changed - please delete this line.
