Description (last modified by scribu)

It's an obscure WPMU feature that 1) hasn't been maintained 2) hardly anyone uses and 3) slows down development on the regular taxonomy code:

#5809 #18609 #18617

There isn't much code to remove, but the idea is to not have to worry about "global terms" anymore at all.

  • Keywords has-patch added

21734.diff takes care of the raw code removal.

To be completely back-compat, we'd need to automatically install a plugin, when upgrading a WPMU network which had global terms enabled.
