Confusing UI grouping of Merge Train items together in MR
What is the productivity problem to solve?
Parts of the MR UI related to merge trains are separated by unrelated items, making it easy to miss the "Merge" button on short windows/screens. I understand this may be intended to be "chronological", but that's not really the case anymore for merge trains, where the "merged result" pipeline still shows its activity in the "first" step. See screenshots.
To explain in more detail, the confusion I had was this:
I saw the "Merge Results Pipeline" section above the fold, which contains all the other information about the pipeline and builds.
I had expected the "Add to Merge Train" button and related information to appear in this section, since they are closely related and documented together
However, the "Add to Merge Train" button and related information is lower in the page, separated by several other sections which are not directly related to the Merge Results Pipeline or Merge Trains:
- Code Quality
- Security Scanning
