Code smells are the "classic" bad smells as first described by Martin Fowler in "Refactoring" [Ref]. These smells must be recognised by the test automater as they maintain test code. Code smells typically affect maintenance cost of tests but they may also be early warnings signs of behavior smells to follow.
