TWiki's INCLUDE{} can bring in content from other webservers. But, it does not set the UserAgent? in its requests, therefore many servers reject the request as being too spammy.

A config option to set the UA should be simple to add. Just define it as a $TWiki::cfg{Net}{UserAgent} option, then include it in external requests (TWiki::Net::getExternalResource)

Changing to enhancement

Note that the feature proposal topic has not been accepted and the 14 day rule does not apply until from the day the proposal has a committed developer on the topic which assures the community will make a decision.

If accepted target release is 5.0.
