Basically, what Nick and George said. Though I'll add that once
you've submitted a few patches and made sure the committers didn't
have to make too many changes before they committed, you can contact
the person who has committed most of your patches in the last few
months and ask them to put the word in for you. Isaac isn't doing as
many commits himself as he used to, so he relies on the rest of us
to tell him who is both interested in commit access and is doing good

I would guess I had about three major changes and about 10,000 lines
of code in before Issac gave me commit access; and I asked twice.
People who primarily submit mostly bug patches tend to not require
as much time + decent code before they are offered commit.
