Hello, I found PoCo::Client::UserAgent (and LWP::Parallel::UserAgent) only follows a redirection when its status is "301 Moved Permanently" or "302 Found". I know LWP is an HTTP/1.0 client and that behavior is correct for those clients, but some loose servers (e.g. send back "303 See Other" as a response to an HTTP/1.0 request. So it would be nice if PoCo::Client::UserAgent (and LWP::Parallel::UserAgent) recognizes also "303 See Other" and "307 Temporary Redirect". Please note that POE-Component-Client-UserAgent-0.06.redirect.patch only works if ParallelUserAgent-2.57.redirect.patch is applied. I have sent the latter patch to its author and waiting for a response... Regards, PHO Show quoted text

Thank you for the patch. I have applied it as revision 15. LWP::Parallel will not install anymore, so I cannot test whether your patch works. It looks simple enough that I trust it without testing, however.
