> Do I have push rights to the main repo?

No -- see the committer / PMC list here:
http://arrow.apache.org/committers/. The PMC periodically will add new
committers based on their contributions to the project (see
https://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#roles). For the
time being I will help with reviewing and merging R-related patches.
Note that reviewing code is also "contributing" so others interested
in R are welcome to help with code / design review also.
