The current master made possible to show map canvas layer groups in the legend (nice!). But if you want to hide the group title it still occupies space in the legend. To remove that space one needs to remove the group item entirely, but if you want to keep it's layers you need to take them out of the group by drag and drop before removing the group layer, otherwise they all disappear.
No sure if this is intended or not. This is quite boring to do if you have lots of layers grouped just for data organization only, and don't what to see the groups in the composer legend.
Since this is a new feature and I have marked it as blocker.
To replicate, just had some layers, create a group from some of them and put it in bellow the other not grouped layers. After that, create a legend in the composer and choose Hidden for the group item.
See the attached images.
