Flexible Metadata Format: Define Essential Attributes

Hi!

During the last weeks we've been experimenting with the Flexible
Metadata Format proof of concept on some real-life components:
There's a small SELinux example showing how FMF could be used for
filtering relevant tests [1], Jakub Krysl successfully used FMF
for generating different device setups for his VDO testing [2] and
Jan Scotka is now integrating FMF with the Meta Test Family.

As the next step we would like to start discussions about the test
metadata content, that is to define essential attributes which
should be stored close to the test code, directly in git repo. If
you are interested in contributing to this effort, please join our
discussions which will happen on the Fedora CI list.

I've created an initial draft for the first couple of attributes
on the Fedora wiki [3]. Please, review and share your thoughts.
Thanks.
