patches for review, you can do this yourself by following the process 
documented here:

it to sign into our Gerrit instance[1].


2. If you're looking to become a maintainer and have the ability to 
submit patches, you need to show the existing maintainers that you're 
capable. This is usually done by participating in discussions on the 
mailing list or Discord, reviewing other people's patches and proposing

License Agreement (CLA). The process is described here:
