I'm wondering if we should also extract a bundle (.tgz or .txz) of the
dojo build as well.
This may be useful for anyone wanting to use the github src for testing
or dev work, without them needing to install dojo src and deps to do a

As for how long to retain, that is a hard one.
I'd say, in general, for as long as possible for general PR output.

For output generated at "release" time I'd say that should be stored in
a separate folder and retained indefinitely.
Especially the dojo build.
The release screenshots should be retained to be used as the "canonical
source" for documentation screenshots

Mobile security can be enabling, not merely restricting. Employees who
bring their own devices (BYOD) to work are irked by the imposition of MDM
restrictions. Mobile Device Manager Plus allows you to control only the
apps on BYO-devices by containerizing them, leaving personal data untouched!
