don't be shy, you can ask here on the list and it should be independent
of many other things.

The first step is to integrate the framework and make it available for
general usage. You don't have to write complex unit test, that can
evolve later on. The goal would be to make it usable in our buildenv
which can be of course a challenge as well.

The test framework is good documented which is good and will help to get
started. Everything else can we figure our later
