Generally, it boils down to

1. Do "git clone git://git.drbd.org/drbd-8.2" if you want to contribute new 
features or "git clone git://git.drbd.org/drbd-8.0" if you want to help 
fixing bugs in the stable branch.
2. Work on the code.
3. Subscribe to drbd-dev (see http://lists.linbit.com/listinfo/drbd-dev for 
4. Start submitting patches.

Everything else depends on the quality of your code. :-)
