Have you seen the README at the top-level of osstest.git? It starts with
a terminology section, which includes defining what a job is: a sequence
of test steps, which could also be called a test case. The ts-* prefix
stands for test step BTW.

There is certainly scope for improving the docs though so please do ask
if anything is unclear and we can improve the docs.
