The 'releases-noredirect' is an internal implementation detail which
can be changed at any moment and should not be used in public URLs.

If you need to bypass the mirror redirection please use:[project]/[project].tar.gz
(i.e. same URL, just replace 'download' with 'download-mirror' host name).

Generally bypassing the mirrors is not recommended,
as it overloads our servers and negates the point of having mirrors.
You've mentioned "Debian watch files" - do these use HTTP HEAD to just check for updates?
