What can one really do? I submitted a patch[1] for a big annoyance in Koji: 
build logs are not easily accessible. The patch is now 3 months old and got 
applied recently to the internal repository but it is still not in the 
deployed Koji. This is very depressing, especially because I needed access to 
build logs a dozend times since then. This not only affects koji, but also 
bodhi where I provided several simple patches that are still not available in 
the deployed version. Same for Makefile.common, where there was only little 
Feedback. Also the documentation in and about koji and bodhi is not very 
good, which makes providing patches even harder.

So it seems the only way to really change something here is to get commit 
access to the projects and access to the deployment servers, but this is imho 
a pretty high barrier.
