You have access to the full resources, just not automatically.  You can
maintain packages as easily as a full developer can, you just need a
sponsor to upload it for you.

You can get accounts on these machines, you just need to ask first.

You appear to be suffering from a lack of initiative.

Ask for one then.  Sheesh, with this defeatist attitude how do you ever
expect to become a D-D?

I think other answers in this thread speak for themselves.  If you've
not even tried asking for an account to fix some bugs, then you're
obviously not that interested fixing them.
