Enclosing class:

public static interface Task.Status extends ToXContentObject, NamedWriteable
Report of the internal status of a task. These can vary wildly from task to task because each task is implemented differently but we should try to keep each task consistent from version to version where possible. That means each implementation of ToXContent.toXContent(org.elasticsearch.xcontent.XContentBuilder, org.elasticsearch.xcontent.ToXContent.Params) should avoid making backwards incompatible changes to the rendered result. But if we change the way a request is implemented it might not be possible to preserve backwards compatibility. In that case, we can change this on version upgrade but we should be careful because some statuses (reindex) have become defacto standardized because they are used by systems like Kibana.
