      Description

      It would be nice if evergreen provided the ability to specify which generated tasks are run on a patch build where one of the selected tasks generates more tasks.

      Our specific use case is the following:

      For performance testing, Atlas Search are able to write YAML files describing performance tests they would like to run. An evergreen task reads these YAML files and generates a task for each one. An Atlas Search engineer may want to only run a specific performance test on a patch, but currently all performance tests would be run if they created the patch and ran the task generating task. It would be nice if they could somehow specify which of the generated tasks they wanted to actually run.
