Except you forget one detail: incubator artifacts don't go to the mirror 
system.   (Which, again, I think is silly.  Part of being in the 
incubator is to learn about apache processes.   One of those should be 
the mirror system.)

To answer the question: all the logs are available on
You can parse them an pull out any information you want.   Just keep in 
mind that after you graduate, all warnings about the mirrors do apply, 
so don't get used to having the download information.
