You are asking a good question here and I did not find guidelines in  
the developer's guide for the process of adding new committers.   
Typically in most open source projects, such as at ASF,  a potential  
committer would  get nominated by an existing committer and a vote  
would take place to approve the new committer.   A potential committer  
would get nominated based on their body of work that was accepted into  
the project.

Perhaps this is something that might need to be added to the  
developer's guide (that is the process of becoming a committer)
