Skip to failed step on "Try Again"
When choosing to try again on a deployment it would be really nice to have an option to skip all steps that did deploy successfully.

Based on failure guidence and the ability to skip already installed packages, this is probably no longer required.

We at Caradigm would appreciate this feature being added.
It would be great if this were machine specific as well. We often have a step fail, but only on 1 or 2 machines out of a group. Then we have to retry failed steps and remember to go back and deploy only to specific machines that failed previously.

If failed packages weren't considered 'installed', this would be really easy - you'd just kick off a new release (without 'force redeployment') and all would be good.
Apparently this is in progress: see http://octopusdeploy.uservoice.com/forums/170787-general/suggestions/5070326-reinstall-packages-that-failed-in-previous-release

When you have a lot of steps (some of our projects have 70), it would be nice to be able to (on a failed deploy) retry the deploy from the failing step - in other words, automatically "Skip" successful steps and just retry the failing one plus the remaining unattempted steps.
