I think the canonical answer is:
1. Master C programming, or at least get Real Good[tm].
2. Submit lots of PR's via send-pr(1) that start with the
3. Make sure the above fix extant problems or add cool new
features, and that they do it the "Right Way[tm]", instead of
the "this seems to work for me" approach used by Penguin
afficiandos at times...
4. Wait a while, folks notice, then you will be eternally punished with
a "commit bit".
I don't think "master" is open to non-committers. But I could
be wrong about that ...
