> Trying to do a bulk update via /database/_bulk_docs and passing any unexpected JSON value
as the body (i.e. anything other than a map with the key "docs" containing the list of documents)
causes CouchDB to return an empty response. I guess it should be returning an error message
describing the problem in this case?
> For example, this works correctly and returns the list of inserted documents:
> curl -X POST -d '{ "docs": [{"name": "Fred"}, {"name": "Bruce"}] }' http://localhost:5984/scans/_bulk_docs
> But this fails with the error message as below:
> curl -X POST -d '[{"name": "Fred"}, {"name": "Bruce"}]' http://localhost:5984/scans/_bulk_docs
> curl: (52) Empty reply from server
> (the difference being that the second is just passing through a list of documents, leaving
out the { "docs": ... } wrapper).
