Currently the OSGi installer web console will just expose a state like „Ignored“ or „Install“ in case a bundle/config/package could not be installed. It would be very helpful (especially in the context of
SLING-5014) to additionally persist some error text on the last action, if it was not successful.
This error text should be exposed through the web console. That way one could easily determine (even afterwards) why a specific artifact was not installed by the installer.
