Just submit your patches as tickets in Trac Ralph.  If they're fine  
and include tests so all the maintainers have to do is check them  
in ... well they'll get tired of it and think about giving you commit  
access.

But

Anybody can provide patches for Typo.  Look in Trac at the '[PATCH]'  
tickets.  You don't need commit access for that.  People need to  
remember that commit access is for the whole community.   I might  
hate the AJAX for sidebars in the admin panel and write a patch that  
rips that out.  I would then just provide it as a ticket on trac and  
not ask for commit access for it because some people like the AJAX  
for the sidebars.  Mind you if I was refactoring the core code to  
make it sleeker and leaner then the whole community would benefit  
from that and that would be included in trunk.  The only thing I'd be  
wary about is your company may want to take Typo in a direction that  
the community doesn't want to go in.  Not saying they would of course  
- just raising the point.
