It seems LAVA is enhancing its job system. Have a look.

Hello everyone,

Collabora has been working on `lqa', a tool to submit and manage LAVA jobs,
which helps to get many of the LAVA job administration and monitoring tasks
conveniently done from the command line.

`lqa' brings a new API, lqa_api python module, a complete set of classes to
easily interact with LAVA and offering at the same time a clean API on top
of which further applications can be built upon (like `lqa' itself).

It has a templating system (using jinja2 package) that allows to use
variables in json job files (in future could be expanded to support yaml),
specifying their values either from a profile file or directly from the
command line making possible the dynamic assignments of template variables
during the `lqa' command execution. The templating mechanism allows to
handle groups of jobs, therefore it makes it easier to submit jobs in bulk.

`lqa' also features a flexible profile system (in YAML) which allows to
specify a 'main-profile' from which further sub-profiles can inherit
values, avoiding information duplication between similar profiles.

Other of the current features include:

- Test report generation with the 'analyse' subcommand.
- Polling to check for job completion.
- All the operations offer logging capabilities.
- Independent profile and configuration files.

We invite everyone to check out its official git repo at:


Suggestions and comments are welcome.
