Summary0021884: Use meaningful names for bugnote cache global variables

As discussed in


I never noticed we had 2 distinct variables for bugnotes caching. It is not really clear what the difference between them are, and they are not formally declared at the top of bugnote api, only as global in the functions using them. Do we actually need 2 of them ?

Even though that's not directly related to this PR, I would suggest to declare them, and add a PHPDoc block to explain their purpose and differences.


I would also rename them to more meaningful names. For example:



right, those names are self-explaining, way better than current ones.
however i would not rename at this moment that there is other PR rewriting the same api

TagsNo tags attached.
