I want to discuss possibility to add network verification status field for
environments. There are 2 reasons for this:

1) One of the most frequent reasons of deployment failure is wrong network
configuration. In the current UI network verification is completely
optional and sometimes users are even unaware that this feature exists. We
can warn the user before the start of deployment if network check failed of
wasn't performed.

2) Currently network verification status is partially tracked by status of
the last network verification task. Sometimes its results become stale, and
the UI removes the task. There are a few cases when the UI does this, like
changing network settings, adding a new node, etc (you can grep
"removeFinishedNetworkTasks" to see all the cases). This definitely should
be done on backend.

What is your opinion on this?
