Use custom user agent for API requests
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I think we should set a custom user agent (something mentioning Web2Cit-Research) for our requests to the Wikimedia APIs. This way we would help others diagnose possible problems our script may be causing.

I have been using http://caicyt-conicet.gov.ar/; mailto:nidiahernandez@conicet.gov.ar, I can change it for the the proyect's page in MetaWiki or "Web2Cit-Research" is better?

Thanks, Nidia. I would add Web2Cit-Research somewhere, considering that the script may be used in the future, after the project grant has ended. I think it's OK to keep the other information too.
