There's two paths forward for you.

If you are selected for GSoC, you'll have our gsoc svn repo available.

The other option is to fork from
using git.

The way that commits normally land in the FreeBSD is that some committer
will push them in with a tag saying that you'd submitted it and when
there's enough you'd get a commit bit of all has gone well.

If you're doing GSoC, then you and your mentor would work this out.
