  No; I strongly recommend you only do work that you care about.

  But, a PPMC member has to nominate you to become a committer; so if 
your sole goal is to become a committer; then you'll have to do 
something for a PPMC member to notice.

  Or if you think you've done plenty; feel free to solicit me (I can't 
speak for other a PPMC members) to point out your contributions.

  When the guy I never heard of emailed me a single line email asking 
that I nominate him to become a committer; I ignored it.

  But, if someone emailed me with some details on why they think they 
should be nomiated, such as "I've submitted pathces to these 5 bugs; 
I've contributed this new code via Jira; and have created 15 new Jira 
entries; 10 of them with patches included.."  I'd be more likely to listen.
