1) Download the source.

2) Build it.

3) Find something wrong with it.

4) Fix it.

5) Send a patch with your fix to axis-dev.

6) Repeat steps 3 through 5 a few times.

7) Point out how much better it would be if you were an Axis committer and 
could just check things in without other people having to submit your 
patches for you.

8) Get voted in as committer.

Hey, it worked for me :-)  (at least it did last summer when I was active 
in Axis development!)

The hardest step is really #3 -- picking what you want to work on.  How 
exactly do you want to make Axis better?  Once you know that, the rest is 
simply about going ahead and doing the work, and sending it to the 
list.  You don't need anyone's permission :-)

If you don't know what to work on, you could ask -- but "How do I 
participate in Axis development?" and "What is something that I, an Axis 
newbie, could possibly help with?" are two different questions.
