      Description

      A user couldn't figure out how to make the automatic checkout go to a subdirectory - we've actually got that documented (checkoutToSubdirectory in the options docs) but it wasn't obvious enough that you should look there. The user ended up getting lost in checkout scm docs and trying to figure out how to use checkout options in Declarative, and so on. This makes me think we should better explain somewhere/somehow that whenever you enter a new agent (at the top level or in a stage) in Declarative, you're going to get an automatic checkout of your SCM, and you can configure the behavior of that checkout via options.
