I'm not a git expert but I think you should use:
- git reset --hard HEAD^
- git push -f
to completely nuke the last commit and never see it again.

I tried doing that for my package (techne), however, it didn't work:
$ git push -f
Total 0 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0)
remote: error: denying non-fast-forward refs/heads/f16 (you should pull
To ssh://tadej@pkgs.fedoraproject.org/techne

I couldn't find a procedure description for deleting unwanted builds in
koji. Since this "purging issue" is clearly above our heads, the
sensible thing would be to ask for help of those who have more
experience handling these issues.
Maybe file a ticket at https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/report for the
Release Engineering team and ask them how to handle the issue.
