It is unclear that the items with ** are dependencies during plugin install on 2.0

      Description

      When the plugin installed wizard is installing plugins, it shows a plugin in black and then it can have other plugins with ** in front that are grey. It is unclear that these grey plugins are the dependencies. There is also a lot of wasted whitespace area during this time as well. The whole area to the left of the installing list is just blank. More information could be provided in that space during install. Perhaps some tips on using Jenkins.

            Keith Zantow I imagine it wouldn't be particularly difficult to add a message below the progress bar that explains that selected plugins and their dependencies are being installed, with a minor change to presentation in the list. WDYT?

            Expectation: Describe what the indicator ** means. It should be clear what are dependencies of the user's selection.

            Planned approach to resolution:

            • Text description in console or somewhere around the console

            Not in scope:

            • Displaying the plugins that caused the install

            Daniel Beck I've added a sort of footnote section to the console log, please check the screenshot and PR https://github.com/jenkinsci/jenkins/pull/2159 to determine if this is sufficient. I believe the text should be around the console log (rather than elsewhere), as that's where the indicator is actually being used.
