If the user has installed the google repository component from the Android SDK copy the data over from there instead of forcing the user to download hundreds of MBs of data.

Unfortunately, we’re unable to reproduce this report. If this issue is still occurring for you, please reopen this issue and attach a reproduction to the bug by starting with a clean Xamarin.Android project adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue.
