yes; like most python programs it does not have proper proxy support.

try transconnect[1]; unfortunately with the switch to 'fed-pkg', you can
not wrap the 'koji' program anymore but have to wrap whole 'fed-pkg'
which calls other tools (git, ssh, curl) with http proxy support. This
might interfere so you might have to play with your parameters.
