Queued tasks- summary tab: Task queued behind a list of all (irrelevant) tasks

In the summary tab of a queued task the following message is shown. "This task has not started yet, and is queued behind these other tasks".
Below this there is a list of all running tasks eventhough they aren't at all related to the queued task.
This seems to have been recently changed, but this is in my opinion just confusing.
Why not only show the relevant task that is causing the new task to be queued?

    We got the same problem with 3.17.7.

    There is no `manual intervention` message as mentioned in the github issue.

    Most of the tasks in the list are irrelavent and deploying to different tentacles and different projects. One of the task (the Game one) is deploying to the same environement but different tentacle and different version

    It seems you can only have one task per environment even if deploying to different tenctacles. Is there any workaround?

    Looking at the screenshot that you have provided it appears that you have enough running tasks that you have hit your task cap [set to 5 be default], which Administrators can change in Configuration ➜ Nodes. The task cap itself is an overall cap for the server, not limited to any environment so if your deployment is configured to allow for parallel deployments it will allow you to deploy to multiple machines in the same environment simultaneously.

    I hope that helps, please let me know if there is anything else that I can help with,
