      Description

      Currently you can set
      log.retention.bytes = -1
      to disable size based retention (in fact that is the default). However, there is no equivalent for time based retention. You can set time based retention to something really big like 2147483647 hours, which in practical terms is forever, but it is kind of silly to require this.
