The correct way to request this is via open build service, from  you need to click the "Request role addition" link and request to be added as a "Maintainer", if you would also like all the bug reports to be assigned to you, you should then request to become the "bugowner" as well, generally the bugowner role will go to the lead maintainer but in many cases the maintainers work this out between themselves.
Richard Brown recently asked maintainers not to directly modify dev projects anyway and to use SRs instead, so as long as there are one or two active maintainers to accept the SRs, you shouldn't need to urgently get maintainer status.
Just to clarify - I meant to convey that it's generally good practice even for explicit maintainers of a devel project to use SR's in order to collaborate with the rest of their devel project team
Therefore, like Greg says, a new contributor shouldn't need to urgently get direct maintainer access
Once the current maintainers of a devel project get to know a new contributor and have established a common way of working, I expect they will quite happily add you as a new maintainer, in order to help review those SR's from everyone and help improve their bandwidth there.
