    Description

      The data warehouse team is tracking driver usage in Atlas and working on a set of charts for that data. As part of that project we would like to begin tracking projects built at MongoDB or maintained by MongoDB employees that wrap drivers. For example, Mongoid, PyMODM, Doctrine, Mongoose, etc. Note that these are wrapping libraries, not applications, so using the appname field is not appropriate.

      The Python and Java drivers provide an API for a wrapping library to append its name, version and limited platform information to the standard metadata. See the Python implementation here:

      https://github.com/mongodb/mongo-python-driver/commit/c63c068611bd4ea3387fc1a08082a96869ac82a1#diff-987f063428999f063731ab71d5f5c3ac

      Let's add similar functionality to all drivers. This is particularly important for projects that have popular ODMs.
