Add way for users to force clear cache
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

In the case of bugs like T116586, we've cached the old wiki name, and will continue to do so for a certain amount of time (in this case, 5 days)

We should add a sort of "Advanced" menu to allow users to force clear the ObjectCache in cases like this, rather than them having to find the ObjectCache.xml file in their user profile folder

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!
