#58175 new defect (bug)

Remove unused 'usermeta' global cache group

The usermeta cache group was introduced in [3011], but was never actually used in core.

The user_meta group is used instead, see [15482], [16562], and [54940].

To avoid confusion, I think the former should be removed from wp_cache_add_global_groups() calls in:

  • wp-includes/load.php
  • wp-includes/ms-blogs.php
  • tests/phpunit/includes/abstract-testcase.php

See [40347] / #38725 for a precedent of removing another unused cache group.

Removing unused 'usermeta' global cache group, as it was never acutally used in core, instead the 'user_meta' group is used instead.
