It's nice to hear, that you want to become a committer for commons!
As far as I know it is not possible to be granted write access to one
component only.
Committership is usually not requested from a project by a contributor, but
it is offered by a project to a contributor.
This involves providing a series of contributions and joining
the discussions on the MLs.
If you are still interested in getting involved, there is a guide on this
topic [1].

Regards,
Benedikt
