Hi Michael, 
If we just had one of two cases where we had decided Variant, and a half dozen where we had decided Not a Variant, I might agree.  But the substantial bulk of our decisions were for Variant. So that seems like the way to go.
P.S. Good choice on not talking while driving.  People who are on the phone while driving, even with a hands-free phone, scare me.

Good catch. I agree that we should try to be consistent. And in case
there is a good reason that requires us to be "inconsistent" we at least
have to argue and comment why we handle those seemingly equivalent cases

As mentioned last week, I will be in a car driving to a customer during
our call and I don't like driving and using the phone (even with a
hands-free kit) at the same time. So I won't be able to join. Therefore
my vote (in case you need it in this call) for this case:
Looking at our original documents my opinion is to not considering base
characters and characters with cedilla below as variants.

Talk to you next week,
