I have a project A with a Deploy a Release step which deploys a release from project B. I start a deployment in A and cancel it. The end result is that the Deploy a Release step is marked as cancelled, but actually project B is deployed.
Problems I can see with this:
1. The cancellation request doesn’t cause child deployment to be cancelled.

At the time when cancellation was requested (07:24:13), the child deployment was still not started, so it should have got cancelled.
Event if it was started, but still in package acquisition phase, the cancellation should be propagated from parent to child and the child deployment should be cancelled.
2. The status in parent project is incorrect
Task summary shows:
This clearly suggests that this step was cancelled. But Task Log shows:
Either the child task should really be cancelled (preferred), or at least the status in parent project should correctly show what really happened (that the child project was deployed).
