Dale Harvey commented on COUCHDB-1089:
--------------------------------------

I have also really wanted this

I found it extremely strange that instantiating a replication was possible without admin credentials
but its never possible to see its status, im happy to provide a patch if the feature is agreeable

> Currently you have to be a database administrator to access _active_tasks. For UX purposes
I would like to allow anyone to see view generation statuses, preferably on a per database
level. This solves the problem of the first user to generate a view that then receives no
time estimate as to when their process will be completed. I can't think of an application
use case for making replication data public.
> I spoke with Volker Mische about the implementation details on this issue and he asserted
after a code dive that it appears achievable, though the innards of the view status code were
not familiar to him.
