[Feature Request] Allow SSHing into build jobs for debugging purposes

We need the ability to SSH into build jobs that are failing inorder to debug the issue. Travis CI (https://docs.travis-ci.com/user/running-build-in-debug-mode/) and CircleCI (https://circleci.com/docs/2.0/ssh-access-jobs/) both support this.

Any update on this? Can we get a thumbs up or down if this will be included at GA launch in ~3 weeks?

 

Edit: Thumbs down

Also semaphoreci.com offers this feature: I can ssh to build machine.

 

So is there any news about this feature in your backlog?

This is a super-useful feature to have, especially when doing cross-platform development.   Its currently the one reason I'm holding back on the transition from circleci.
