In addition to those changes listed in the poll, the Minimum Bid Increment (
beg) of UNIV2DAIUSDT-A will also increase from 3% to 5%. This was an accidental omission from the poll due to the onboarding timeline of UNIV2DAIUSDT-A. It has been included here because it keeps all UniswapV2 liquidity pool token vault types with consistent auction parameters.
