What's been happening most is that someone is active in submitting
patches for bugs in, I or another developer
notices, and offers commit access.  While this doesn't seem like a good
model, and I would be interested in whether the board wants something
else to be happening, it has worked for now.

But the key is first submitting patches for bugs and generally showing
yourself to be an active developer.
