OK, that works too and looks comprehensive. 
There is an easier way, though. If you have FOP set up in an IDE (Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA...),
then, as mentioned on the Wiki, you can just "set up a JUnit Launch configuration", which
will allow you to run the test from within your IDE. That's where those variables come into
play. If you do not set them, the entire test suite will be run. Specifying '-Dfop.layoutengine.starts-with=...'
as a VM parameter would only run those tests whose name starts with the specified string,
etc.

In that case, you have the benefit of the standard output we normally get when running the
test suite (see the output I posted earlier). If the test passes, you should also get a clear
indication that none of the checks failed and the test finished successfully.

and close it?

Indeed. If we confirmed it on our end, we will then add the test to our suite, and everything
remains available in Bugzilla for future reference. If we cannot verify that it has been fixed,
we will reopen and will ask you to re-examine.

Thanks!
