If you will do core development, then you need your own build.

You checkout (or download) the source and build it. Then you write your 
changes to your local source and build it again. Then you test, whether 
the bug is fixed or the feature works as intended. If all is OK, you 
create a patch and append the patch to the issue and make an review request.

If an experienced developer finds your patch is good, he will push it to 
the trunk. This commit will get your name as author, so it is recorded, 
that you have written the patch.

Kind regards
