#7619: `groups_create_group()` messes with creator_id
 Reporter:  boonebgorges  |      Owner:

 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  3.0
Component:  Groups        |    Version:
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 It's technically possible to update a group using `groups_create_group()`,
 but it is pretty finicky with respect to `creator_id`.

 `groups_create_group()` assigns the logged-in user to `creator_id`. This
 means that, when running the function programatically or in a non-standard
 way, you have to manually pass `creator_id` to avoid having it overwritten
 with potentially incorrect information.

 `creator_id` (and probably status?) should be inherited from the existing
 group, in the same way that `$name` and `$slug` are.
