I think your best bet is to sign up on bugs.gentoo.org and start doing ebuild maintanence there. As far as I know, Gentoo mostly uses an invite-system when it comes to developers. Do some useful work for awhile, and people will notice.

As the other folks have noted, the best way to become a gentoo developer is to hit bugzilla, start picking off bugs and you'll get noticed. That is how 90%+ of our developers get recruited to the team.

I am just curious to know:

how do the other 10% make their way into the dev team?
(money? sexual abandonment? beer?)

Referrals from other developers, mostly.

And sending me a large quantity of money won't hurt you chances, either.
