Author: Ludovic Courtès <l...@gnu.org>

    http-client: Provide 'User-Agent' header by default.
    
    * guix/http-client.scm (http-fetch): Add #:headers parameter and honor
    it.  Rename 'auth-header' to 'headers'.
    * guix/import/github.scm (json-fetch*): Add comment about required
    User-Agent.
