Review metadata functions for irregularities
|Reported by:||boonebgorges||Owned by:||boonebgorges|
|Component:||Component - Core||Keywords:||2nd-opinion|
In rewriting our metadata functions, I identified a number of peculiarities in their implementation. Some are mere inconsistencies between component (like the format of the return value of _get_metadata() when no meta_key is passed). Some are, IMO, misplaced attempts at sanitization. And some are outright bugs, as when meta_keys are changed silently in the process of adding metadata.
This ticket will serve as a place to collect instances of these issues, and to begin to make recommendations for what can and cannot be fixed or improved.
