6-12 months should be more than enough but it might be worth trying
to keep a release-lifetime of logs (~18 months, including pre-release)
I would think we keep log/execution data for current milestone-1, so if
we're in Beta, we keep Beta and Alpha logs. It's not very common that
something breaks in Final and we need to look all the way back to Alpha,
is it? As for packages not in the frozen set, I'd think 60-90 days would

Ideally, yes but I don't think it's worth more than a day's effort
for one person if we have proper 404 processing on the machine hosting
If it does become an issue in the future, it wouldn't be difficult to
go back and change dead links if we needed to.
That makes sense to me.

Either way - I suspect that they're not going to have much of an
opinion and it adds bureaucracy to the process but I suppose that the
decision would be a bit more "official" if we asked them.
I don't know that we need fesco for this decision, but it might be a
good thing to make sure is documented somewhere should someone ask.
