Hi Paolo,

This is a general answer for the list and the archives, not directly at 
you. I know you've been around for awhile. ;-)

It's not very formal. I recommend generating some material (e.g. 
patches, sample packages) showing a basic understanding of how osgeo4w 
works and usefulness to the community, and then to ask here on the list. 
This gives currrent committers and maintainers a chance to discuss 
request  (which often doesn't happen as there's usually no controversy; 
the merits are self evident). If there is no response in a reasonable 
time, the current admins being occupied elsewhere much of the time, run 
down the list at http://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/wiki/CoreTeam.

The "repo" part bears expanding on: there is the package repository, 
downloads.osgeo42.org, where we all install the O4W software from, and 
the subversion code repository , for the setup programs. They have 
independent permissions. Generally speaking a "committer" is for the 
code and a "maintainer" for packages. There are many more maintainers 
than committers.
