Description Ariel Constenla-Haile 2013-03-24 02:16:32 UTC
many sites require that HTTP request are sent by clients setting the User-Agent header.
OpenOffice should set a default user agent string in every requests, unless client code explicitly has done that (css::ucb::XWebDAVCommandEnvironment::getUserRequestHeaders()).

Example of user agent strings:

* "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; en_US) AppleWebKit/534.34 (KHTML, like Gecko) knetattach/4.9.5 Safari/534.34"
* "curl/7.27.0"
* "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0"
* "Apache/2.4.3 (Fedora) OpenSSL/1.0.1e-fips PHP/5.4.12 mod_wsgi/3.4 Python/2.7.3 mod_perl/2.0.8-dev Perl/v5.16.2 (internal dummy connection)"
* "urlgrabber/3.9.1 yum/3.4.3"

The format is defined in

       User-Agent     = "User-Agent" ":" 1*( product | comment )


       User-Agent: CERN-LineMode/2.15 libwww/2.17b3

For OpenOffice, we could use:


It might be useful to provide information about the libraries:

"OpenOffice/4.0.0 apr/1.4.5 apr-util/1.4.1 serf/1.2.0"
