Let anonymous users access _active_tasks for view generation estimates
----------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-1089
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1089
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HTTP Interface, JavaScript View Server
            Reporter: max ogden
            Priority: Minor


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.
