Not every user is a contributor for development, documentation, 
translation, bug-reporting, promotion or donations. And nobody is 
demanding contributions, if you're an end-user that is fine too.

I think it is important to understand that when you are a user you _can_ 
contribute, but if you choose not to participate in the community people 
might not be interested. Outsiders seldom cause change.

Also, if you're not "able" to contribute or participate (for whatever 
reason) I don't see good reasons to use a bleeding-edge distribution that 
thrives on development and feedback.
