Hi Srimanth,

As you already know from being a committer on Ambari, there is no formal access for contributors.
The asf roles [1] describe these in detail. All contributors have to submit the code as patches
to JIRA issues. So kindly work with patches for now. Bulk contributions like this are favorably
considered and quickly get voted in as committers, but thats subjective and also there is
a latency with such voting (especially for incubating projects). So i suggest you not to wait
and start sending with the merge and keep turning in patches. It will be little inconvenient,
but patches, reviews and acceptance are the bets way to grab others attention and interest.
