Thank you for the reply. While I was looking at old open issues that
haven't been closed, I came across
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=47279 , this bug
seems to have been fixed. I tried creating a pdf from a xml using xsl
without specifying any font-name, and setting the font-weight to bold. I
didn't get any warning messages form the conversion. Should I change the
state of the bug form open to resolved?
I wanted to test the resolved bugs as well. I saw that some have test
cases modified as patches are applied. I wasn't sure how I can go about
testing for the bug fixes. For instance for the patch in
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=50471 , should I
create a document with a character 1F7E and see if fop runs without errors?
Lastly, in the page
under the topic *Setting up the Test Suite in your favorite IDE,* I
could not figure out how to set the system properties to control the
test cases run in Eclipse. Could you please tell me how to do it?
I would really appreciate your guidance.

Actually, I would encourage testing closed issues, or at least those
issues that were resolved without creating a test data set that
demonstrates both the bug and the fix, and maintains non-regression.
I have noticed a number of issues "fixed" without adding such tests,
which should be the norm, not the exception.

FOP is an open source project, and everybody can contribute in his own
way, so you can reopen closed issues as you want if needed, and submit
patches as you want.
That said, IMHO, apart in a company quality context, testing closed
issues will not help very much (typically, an issue is closed after
developer's checks, and it is often monitored by the opener who reopen
it if needed)
you can check old opened issues against FOP TRUNK, since there is no
systematic checks for opened issues after each commit.
You can find fixed issues that haven't been closed.
