I like these two combined:
- 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?)
i.e. we would add a use_fake_user_agent parameter to methods in http.comms, which is False by default, True forces a fake user-agent, and None means automatic use of fallback logic (use fake if in the config list, otherwise try with real user-agent, and fallback to fake).
Then we can remove the fake_user_agent config option.
That could be an extra feature.
It would also be nice if the config list allowed literal strings: when connecting to this server, use this user-agent, rather than a random one.
