Anybody who has signed the copyright assignment with the FSF and who has
write access to the SVN repository is permitted to create and maintain a
branch in the source code repository.  Steering committee approval is
not required.  The policies may be found here: .

So your first step is going to be to sign the FSF copyright assignment,

Thanks for your interest in gcc.
