I test. I file bugs. I triage where both allowed and reasonably competent. I
have hundreds of installations across a variety of real hardware largely for
precisely such purposes. Filing a reproducible bug with enough information
for an assignee to proceed to fix it can take hours, even days, to discover
enough to know in which tracker is appropriate to file, besides how to
describe errant behavior. You won't find me active in bugs.launchpad.net or
debian.org/Bugs due largely to incompatibility between myself and those
trackers, but you will find me as commenter, CC and reporter *upstream* on
bugs.kde.org, bugs.freedesktop.org, bugzilla.mozilla.org,
bugzilla.kernel.org, bugs.pearsoncomputing.net, bugreports.qt.io and
elsewhere on which Kubuntu depends. I, as well as others, could do more if
only important function blockers[1] weren't left to languish unfixed.
