Build console displays configuration source: file or web UI and some basic settings.

Hi Feodor - can we have the ability to see what configuration our build is using?

For example, I'm migrating things over to use a custom .yml file .. so I'd like to know that when I (or other team members) review the build console messages in AV.


1. Build Started
2.     -> Configuration: via AV Website GUI
3.  Fetching repository commit (386c6a9)...OK
4.  Settings to be used:
5.    Branch: only master (or any except foo, bar, etc)
6.    Configuration: debug | release, etc
7.    Environment variables: none | a - b, c - d .. etc
1. Build Started
2.     -> Configuration: via yml file: SomeFolder\someFile.yml
3.  Fetching repository commit (386c6a9)...OK
4. .... <etc>

Or maybe put a summary of these into a separate tab. Console | Messages | Tests | Artifacts | Settings

even a fully generated yml of the settings would be sufficient. If we provided the yml, it would (basically) be that plus any default values.

    Heya Feodor - any thoughts on this? Could I create a GH issue about this if you like the idea?

    Yeah. I think most of those things could be outputted with a simple PowerShell script that can be called in `init` method.

    Could it be baked into the standard build lifecyle?

    Well, yeah, but it's not like high-priority feature, right?
