Yes, but this is nebulous; according to it, I did the right thing by stepping
in and trying to fix it. If they fail to build constantly, then it is a
waste of time to keep building them. We can say that if they fail to build
for more than a month, they go to tier III.

But this is not true in practice.

Yes, that would be better.

It is easy enough to put them in a folder with todays' MUA's.

That's fine too.

We are trying to reach it.

He did it by himself, but that was a good change.
