[Bug-XBoard] how to claim draw by rule (how is it handled in the protocol)

Thank you for this great program. I am currently developing a new chess
engine for it, and am having a question regarding how the protocol
handles draws that need to be claimed (3 fold and 50 rep).
According to the FIDE rules, both draw by 3 fold and draw by 50 rep has
to be claimed by either player, and is not automatic like a stalemate.
I understand how the engine can claim a draw by sending a result, but I
don't see how the user can claim a draw (as opposed to offering a draw
in which case the engine can decline).
Can someone please enlighten me on this matter?
Thank you very much
