I do not believe we have a formal procedure, but it would be roughly the
same as for every other open-source projects:

- Submit a number of technically sound patches
- Ping them until they are accepted, or a reasonable number of pings go
- When a number of patches are either accepted or ignored, request
   commit access, listing all such patches
- Ping the request
- If nothing happens, escalate to the steering committee.

Does this help?
