Subject: Use LWP::UserAgent instead of LWP::Simple
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 351b
Currently we use LWP::Simple to get the web feeds. This works, but it uses the default Agent string (and I don't think there's a way to change it). It would be nicer if we used a "proper" LWP::UserAgent object and set an agent string containing contact details so that site owners can contact us if they don't like what we're doing with their content.
Fixed in release 0.10.
