      Description

      It looks like that course formats no longer displays the grouping that has been set under the section.

      This looks like it's been caused by MDL-36095, which looks like it made changes to deal with providing "Available until" messages.

      This is happening on Moodle 2.4 for us and is confusing as under 2.3 this information was displayed and was useful in courses.

      To replicate (on a server with conditional access enabled), as a staff member with "view hidden topics" permission:

      1. Create a grouping in a course
      2. For a topic in the course, edit the topic and restrict access only to that grouping
      3. You see no indication that the topic is restricted to the grouping (unlike for other conditions where staff are shown full details of the restrictions)
