You don't have to dig into internals, just be willing to help bug wranglers 
and patch builders reproduce the bug.  Testing/unstable user aren't expected 
to fix bugs on their own, just provide assistance to the maintainer(s) and 
upstream(s).

Testing or unstable can be more suitable for some users that expect new 
upstream releases to propagate to their system quickly.  Unstable means 
changing constantly; not broken -- issues get fixed in unstable with much less 
turn-around than testing or stable.
