As per Cinder developer documentation under section "Contributing Your Work" following requirement is mentioned: "Add your name and email address to the Authors file, and also to the .mailmap file if you use multiple email addresses. Your contributions can not be merged into trunk unless you are listed in the Authors file."

However there is no "Authors" file in the repository. Where this file is located?

This doc is outdated. Nowadays, AUTHORS files are autogenerated from git authors, so you don't need to add your name to it prior to contributing.

The instructions on how to become a developer of any OpenStack project are on the wiki page How To Contribute.

Cinder doc should be fixed, I filed the following bug to track that:
