This feature request is from my recent experience of using gradle.
e.g. An official webpage of the distribution of the binary had given the wrong(a typo) gradle compile dependancy link(url).
Gradle for Android kept reporting “not found” in the error message. But this message is too abstract to identify where things are going wrong.(For new users, it is confusing and stuck between if the url is wrong or something else is going on in gradle)
I am sure an HTTP request is sent to the URL, Instead of “Not Found”. More detail as to which link was broken or more descriptive message will be helpful.
