I agree that 'guix gc' deletes too much, but it's probably not
dangerous. You will just see some downloads and builds repeated when
reconfiguring later.

I believe 'guix gc' deletes items that are not garbage to me (but I am
new to Guix). Based on friendly advice I received, I currently use
these settings:

  config => (guix-configuration
    (inherit config)
    (extra-options (list "--gc-keep-derivations=yes" "--gc-keep-outputs=yes"))

Kind regards
