I agree with this as well.

It might be tricky to know when a package has failed to build for 6
months. Do we keep build farm evaluations for that long? Can we automate
failure notifications after a certain date?

But, it's not so important whether or not it has been exactly 6 months.
At a certain point we know it's been too long and that the package is
not useful anymore.
