Clone our git tree and make reasonably-sized commits (one bugfix /
logical change per commit), put your email/realname in the git config
and write a short summary of your commit.
Then use git send-email to send the patches to the osmocom-sdr

If you think there will be regular contributions, we could give you
git commit access. But even in that case, we normally expect developers
to commit to a private branch from which the maintainer (in this case
Steve Markgraf) will cherry-pick or merge.
