The way I understand it is that to "become a core dev" you basically
have to impress the stuffing out of the core devs enough that someone
gives you direct commit access.  If your patches require significant
rewrites, it's not likely.  If you consistently submit patches that
they can check in with little or no changes, it's more likely.  For a
list of who currently owns what (and thus, I assume, has commit
rights) you can go here: http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/wiki/GoToDev
