The process is pretty simple: an email needs to be sent to asking for an id (sending the note to also would work).

It helps if the request is fairly complete (names, emails, groups, etc). 
  Gump is a special case as it is open to all committers, otherwise the 
specific cvs trees also need to be identified.

The other thing to consider is that the person receiving the request 
needs to be able to validate that this request is proper.  There are 
multiple ways to achieve that.  One is simply to be as well known as I 
am.  ;-)  Another is to copy the relevant PMC, thereby enabling anybody 
who might object an opportunity to do so (essentially authentication by 
lazy consensus).  A third way is to provide specific hypertext links to 
the mailing list whereby the votes took place.

Rules of thumb: don't be shy.  And remember that the person on the other 
end of that email is a human.  The request may happen in minutes.  If 
not, and a few days go by, ping nicely.
