Does there exist a download URL that will redirect me to a mirror?

All,

Does ASF host a web service that I can hit that requests a download of
a particular resource, but first to redirect to a mirror?

If I go to e.g. https://tomcat.apache.org/download-90.cgi, I'll get a
bunch of links that point to a randomly-chosen mirror, but what I'd
like to do is request e.g.


https://tomcat.apache.org/download/tomcat-9/v9.0.12/bin/apache-tomcat-9.
0.12.zip

and get a redirect to e.g.:


http://ftp.naz.com/apache/tomcat/tomcat-9/v9.0.12/bin/apache-tomcat-9.0.
12.zip

Does anything like that exist?

If not, is it something worth building?

I'm asking because I'd like to start scripting the release-builds, and
it would be nice to fetch things like e.g. subversion with a
well-known URL but not always hitting ASF directly (because mirrors
are great!).

Thanks,
- -chris

Look at the Tomcat 9 build script. In particular, the entry for
base-apache.loc.1 in build.properties.default
