This task needs a little analysis to determine why the default is None

None behaves the same way as True (if set a value, UA becomes that value. if False, default UA returned). The default is Introduced since the patch was submitted and unchanged since then.

Potential actions:

  • Set fake_user_agent value to false by default.
  • Change reflinks and weblinkchecker to retry with fake UA if first request gets rejected (need to decide what errors/status codes constitute as a rejection).
  • Maintain a list of problematic sites in the configuration file (or should this be hosted on WikiTech?)
  • Split config entries to separate behavior when a site is/isn't in the problematic list.
