Thank you, that really helps a lot. We want to trigger the LAVA jobs from Jenkins as well, and we need lots of metadata because the tests will be part of our release notes in the end. So no, this is definitely not more complicated than we need. In fact, this is a very good starting point for us.

You should think about adding a chapter to the LAVA documentation about how to generate YAML job submissions via templates. I assume we are not the only ones facing this problem. And I had basically no experience with jinja2 at all before evaluating LAVA, so I would not have come up with the idea of using this mechanism for the job submissions myself.
