Debian testing?

hi all
i just have a little question
i was walking in debian site and found this
Interested users and developers are invited to join the #debian-bugs IRC channel on and help with these efforts or test out pre-release versions of "Squeeze".
i would like if some one tell me how they find bugs
is there any specific tools for debugging or testing?
any special test cases?
i have simple knowledge about software testing
so could some one explain
thanks in advance

Craigevil gave you a good link to answer a lot of your questions. I wonder, however, if your question is not a bit more basic. If I have misunderstood please overlook me.
The way product testing in debian works is simply that you use the system. If you discover bugs, you report them. The only tool you need is the package reportbug to facilitate the reporting of bugs. Before you report a bug, you should use the bug tracking system to see if the bug has already been reported. If it has, read all the posts. If you can contribute new information, do so.

I welcome any comments/corrections to this explanation.
