I don't remember seeing anyone else respond to you, so I'm going to

There isn't a formal process, but essentially you start by contributing
bugfix or minor feature enhancement patches to the interchange-core
mailing list. Or you can discuss with us the design of larger new features
(to make sure they fit with the rest of the project) and then implement
and contribute them. If you contribute several good patches and are
interested, then we should talk about having you become a CVS committer.

Many important contributions to Interchange come from people who aren't
committers themselves, but occasionally pass patches on to one of the
developers they know.

Other ICDEVGROUP members may wish to weigh in on the matter too.

We look forward to your contributions!
