If you're already a Commons committer, all you need to do is add yourself
to the STATUS file. Item #15 in the guidelines of the Commons Charter
says:

"Each committer has karma to all the packages, but committers are required
to add their name to a package's status file before their first commit to
that package."

See http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/charter.html

For active components, of course, it's polite to ask first, but if there's
nothing else going on, you should feel free to jump right in and have at
it.
