      Description

      Various existing tickets on this subject refer to naming steps in pipelines (for example, JENKINS-37324).

      I'd like to request the ability to name (and describe) each step in the GUI as well.

      The texts would play the same role in a build, that comments play in regular code.

      The names could also be shown in console output, and the descriptions could be shown as a user hovers over the name, etc. For example:

      • Download sources
      • Change paths in Makefile
      • Build
      • Test

      Currently one's only indicator as to what's happening is the type of the build-step. But that's not always sufficiently descriptive...
