      Description

      It is often useful to provide more information up-front than a simple red or green "this step passed" or "this step failed". Our current in-house CI software has a "summary" field in its "Running Steps" equivalent, which can be filled with other info when a step finishes. For example, we have a step "upload-to-storage" which can optionally replace a "/latest/" symlink to the output it just uploaded. Either replacing or not replacing the symlink is correct, so we populate our "summary" field with the decision taken.

      I've attached an example from our current CI system - note that by allowing a step to populate its own summary, it means all pertinent information is available immediately to developers, on one page, rather than needing to always click through to log output for high-level information.
