Great start.

Tests based on ED looks good to me.

Both Critic and GH are OK and acceptable, feel free to use your familiar one or both. Anyone is welcome to review the tests.

Yes, I will review it, but please expect this is to be done later next week. If someone reviews it before that time and at least leave a LGTM comment, I can help merge it without my review.
