I did do a cm11 repo sync to update my source and now i get this:

Fetching projects: 99% (471/475) Fetching project CyanogenMod/android_packages_apps_Email
fatal: remote error:
Repository unavailable due to DMCA takedown.
See the takedown notice for more details:
https://github.com/github/dmca/blob/master/2014-12-22-Cambridge-Mobile.md.
error: Cannot fetch CyanogenMod/android_external_svox

error: Exited sync due to fetch errors

I did a sync on cm10.2 and alsow get:

Fetching project platform/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/host/x86_64-linux-glibc2.7-4.6
Fetching projects: 99% (394/397) fatal: remote error:

just ran into the same problem here, my work around was simply to remove that repo from the repo list.

just before repo sync, do this
Code:
nano .repo/manifests/default.xml
press ctrl+w <-- this will open search 
type CyanogenMod/android_external_svox
enter
now remove that entire line
ctrl+o to save, followed by enter and ctrl+x to close nano
repo sync

do note, I'm not sure what function this repo serves, just that it shouldnt effect me, since im not building a rom from the source, only using CM to build kernels and recoveries, I hope.

Edit: I'm running into a building error now, so be careful, it could just be CM11 error, or due to my bypass.
Edit2: it's an art compiling problem.

what about the old repo like cm10.1, cm10.2 and etc. Are this 'android_external_svox' will take effect on compiling rom?

I wasnt building ROMs so it didn't matter to me...
but I just resync'ed after few hours and the repo was automatically re-linked to asop and it was still available there.
so it worked.. and it was cm11.

if you're on another version and it hasn't been fixed, just lock at the local manefest.xml or what ever the name is and change the repo manually.
to do so after you open the xml search for "android_external_svox".

Can I copying from different version, for example : jellybean-stable > cm10.1/cm10.2?
