Another way you can help, Is to go through the Formatting component on
WordPress trac (among others..) looking for bugs, and writing test cases for
them, specifically finding things that appear broken in Core so the tests
reflect that (Then we'll also have a way of testing subsequent patches)

We'd really like to get more unit tests for core that highlights when a
changeset breaks something else, or a changeset fixes 3 out of 4 edge cases,
etc. right now, most testing is done ad-hoc and hoping the tester covers
every angle.
