Right, if the last build was successful, the job will not be disabled,
even if the last build was older than one month. However, if your last
job was unsuccessful and no one has fixed that for more than a month,
I think disabling is probably appropriate. In your case, simply enable
the job again when you fixed the problem with Clover. If you haven't
used the job for nine months, unchecking a checkbox is probably not
that much work when you're ready to run again :-)
