Jdforrester-WMF updated the task description. (Show Details)
Jdforrester-WMF added a project: Citoid.
Jdforrester-WMF added a subscriber: Jdforrester-WMF.

(Should only be set in the /deploy repo.)

Are there any docs anywhere for this user-agent string? Or is this esp. for citoid?

I used a custom citoid-only user string for a while and found that some sites would refused to serve anything to it. Not saying we shouldn't use it regardless though.

Jdforrester-WMF triaged this task as High priority.
Jdforrester-WMF set Security to None.
