I disagree with this one, though -- built packages should remain "forver".
Packages for EOL fedora releases are still available and repositories on for EOL releases are not pruned.  Those are the
precedents that we should be following.

We may want to move them out of copr (similar to how EOL fedora releases get
moved to

Are packages under the user's quota?  If so, we may
want to establish a quota for EOL packages as well so that the user is
encouraged to self-prune EOL or no longer needed builds (package has been
merged into newer fedora or etc).
