(Whiteboard: [Candidacy Approved] - 2 hours)

Latest CCK build dated: 03-21-00

O/S: WinNT4.0

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install cck
2. launch cck
3. create a "default" configuration build without entering a value for the 
user-agent string.
4. Install build
5. View the user-agent string


The User-agent string should contain "-CCK".

If user adds their own custom User agent text, it should be appended to the user 
agent string.

This is a Beta2 requirement per Client Product Marketing

Varada, can you please provide examples in this bug of a customized user agent 
string as follows:

*customized user agent string with CCK user's custom string (i.e. "MyIsp")
*customized user agent string with home page URL (no custom string specified)

The User Agent string is getting customized with the -CCK and 10 character 

If users don't specify a 10 character user agent string, CCK Tool should append 
the home page URL.  Currently this is not working.
Um, user agent and URL are completely different things.  This bug should be
about what the summary says and shouldn't have anything to do with URLs...

CCK should append -CCK to the user agent string ALL THE TIME.  Updating summary.
Summary: Add "-CCK" to user agent string, by default, if not specified. → Always add "-CCK" to user agent string.
As discussed and requested by Bijal, in a previous CCK team meeting dated: 
04-24-00 (commented above), there are two expected behaviors that need to occur 
with regards to customizing the user agent string:

1. Always add -CCK and user's specified 10 character user agent string

2. If user doesn't specify a string, the CCK Tool should automatically append 
the home page URL to the -CCK.

Number two was added to this bug to keep all expected user agent behavior 
Adding Bij to CC.

Bij, there is _no_ circumstance under which adding an URL to the user agent
string is correct.  Perhaps you had something else in mind?
