Discussions in builds


Some build failures can be hard to diagnose. As with most hard things, it helps to discuss it with someone else - they often have a different point of view.

My team is distributed, and many discussions happen via the Internet, often asynchronously.

Currently, to discuss why a build has failed happen through other channels, such as Slack, GitHub issues or email.

It would be really nice to be able to select a line in the logs, and start a discussion around that line. Similar to how Google Docs and GitBook do it would be fine.

We’re building such a line-based commenting feature in our own project (Cucumber Pro), and we might open source a React component. Maybe you could use it too, and maybe even help us improve it?
