[icinga-devel] useragent string for robot

as far as I'm concerned with Nagios plugins I think they will remain as 
is because they are not part of the Nagios core. As you can see in the 
quickstart guides for Icinga they can be installed just the way like 
nagios only using another install prefix.

So afaik the Nagios plugins will be maintained by their current 
developers not by Icinga. If they decide to make one Version for Icinga, 
the HTTP header might change then as well.

Kind regards,
