Nope, this is a variable you can set from your CTest driver script.
 Typically we use this field to upload this script itself to CDash.  Here's
an example of how to do that:


Or if you're not using ctest in -S mode, you can also specify a note using
the ctest command line:

$ ctest --help | grep note
  -A <file>, --add-notes <file>
                              = Add a notes file with submission
