There is really only one way to get involved in development - identify a
missing feature or a bug (either through your own use of the program or
soliciting opinion from others), study the code to identify the source
of said feature or bug (this is the time-consuming part, especially when
documentation is so scarce, but there is no avoiding it), code and test
the fix, then submit a patch for others to use and test.
One can argue about source control methodologies until the cows come
home; it's not SVN preventing new developers from getting involved, if
there is any obstacle it is merely the start-up cost of familiarising
oneself with a large, underdocumented code base.
