It's pretty open.  Basically, CVS read access is open to everybody. 

We are working on a system for easy documentation contribution that 
should be available soon.

There are quite a few people who get write access to CVS and it is not 
difficult to become one of them.  Basically showing interest is a big step.

One requirement is subscribing to the scipy-dev at scipy.net  mailing list.

I would do that and formally request access on that list.
