Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-185) group=true is silently dropped in non-reduce views

group=true is silently dropped in non-reduce views

                 Key: COUCHDB-185
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 0.9
            Reporter: Maximillian Dornseif
            Priority: Trivial

If you query a view without a reduce() function and pass group=true the group parameter is
ignored. This does certainly not follow the principle of least astonishment.

One might argue, that requesting grouping on something without reduce is generally an error
and thus should result in an HTTP error, but this might break to much existing code.

But at least the fact, that the parameter was ignored should be logged.
