    Description

      Currently there seems to be no clear defintion of these terms. It would be beneficial to have one to

      • communicate to users what they means
      • give a guideline to custome Publisher, Reporter, BuildStep authors how to set these results
      • give a common vocabulary to developers and users

      I'd propose to put these defintions into an easily accessible page - i.e. in the Jenkins UI itself.

      See https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=de#!topic/jenkinsci-dev/2rMdYX3WMwo for the related discussion on the developers mailing list

            zionyx: I had already mentioned that page in https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=de#!topic/jenkinsci-dev/2rMdYX3WMwo and why I think that it is not enough.
