we should come back with more jobs to do. A lot of activity at technical problems to look at the same time by the core team. Plus we are in various timezones - Asia - Europe - America.

Yes tracing individual buildings is always useful, including in the Kathmandu urban area.

Since a lot of work now needs to be done by more experienced mappers, is it still helpful for newbies like me to trace houses and other "easy" features? Does seeing every building in an area (especially isolated buildings) help with rescue and aid?A lot of these buildings seem really hard to get to, so if they're mapped it would seem that they won't be overlooked, but I wanted to check.
Question 2:Should blue and red-roofed buildings be marked, and if so, as buildings? They are aid tents, right? 
I'm sure I'm like thousands of newbs who are eager, dying, to help but not wanting to waste time on unimportant tasks.Please advise.
