So this is an arbitrary string the user can enter anything into?

I guess I'm not sure why it's needed when there is already a
description field -- that's pretty much what I put in the description

And there is already a facility for grouping build agents.  How is
this going to change the UI for that or for how you select which set
of agents is used for particular builds?

Don't let me stop you if you have some grand plan for this new field,
but I'm concerned that this is adding complexity.  Continuum suffers
from a history of tacking on one thing after another and not
organizing it very well.
