[SOLVED] Should AUR package managers send a package manager header?

I've recently stumbles upon this issue in Manjaro's GitLab instance, and I've noticed in the third reply to the third comment that Philip Müller mentioned that Pamac sends a request containing pamac itself and it's version when doing searches.

Is it common practice for AUR package managers to do such? Is that something that the AUR maintainers would like to be done when AUR package managers send search queries?

It is common practice when writing software that downloads content from servers. It's not really specific to the AUR.

Thanks for the info!

Is there any standard on how (presumably) the header should be set up, or do I just need to get something down? Googling it isn't getting me much of anywhere.

"progname/version" is common.
