Motion 101-M7 carries.
[101-C18] Consensus: UTC accepts the 12 CJK Ext B glyph changes documented in the "G source" column of section T.18 of document L2/04-408.
[101-C19] Consensus: Add a field to Unihan that contains the Pinyin readings and mapping data for the approximately 14000 ideographic characters from the XHC source as a provisional data field, after Unicode 4.1.

[101-C22] Consensus: The UTC concurs with Stoetzner L2/04-395 that capital double S is a typographical issue. Therefore the UTC believes it is inappropriate to encode it as a separate character.
[101-C23] Consensus: The proposal for encoding of danda and double danda for Kannada is not mature because UTC wants a comprehensive approach to decide whether or not to disunify several dandas.
[101-C24] Consensus: The UTC would not oppose addition of the remaining 4 chars in the proposal L2/04-364 (i.e., excluding dandas). UTC wouldn't oppose them if the issue comes into WG2.
[101-C25] Consensus: Ask the officers to get input from V S Umamaheswaran and respond to Om Vikas (Gov't of India) on the Vedic proposal L2/04-398. ((Specific questions: why are the characters with virama explicitly dis-unified with Devanagari? And so forth. Wa and Va Oriya may be in the wrong place? Gurmukhi letter to be moved?))
[101-C26] Consensus: UTC approves assigning U+05BA HOLAM HASER FOR VAV and U+05C7 QAMATS QATAN. (This is a swap of the previously approved codepoints.)
[101-C27] Consensus: Acccept 5 Latin Orthographic characters and codepoints:
U+2C60 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER DOUBLE-BARRED L U+2C61 LATIN SMALL LETTER DOUBLE-BARRED L U+2C62 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER L WITH MIDDLE TILDE * lowercase is U+026B U+2C63 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER P WITH STROKE * lowercase is in the pipeline U+2C64 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER R WITH TAIL * lowercase is U+027D
and put into a new block with name "Latin Extended C". Document reference L2/04-372.

[101-C29] Consensus: Accept the 26 math characters in L2/04-410 for inclusion in Unicode 5.0.
[101-C30] Consensus: Change the joining type of U+06C2 ARABIC LETTER HEH GOAL WITH HAMZA ABOVE to be the same as U+06C1 ARABIC LETTER HEH GOAL (dual joining).
[101-C31] Consensus: Change the definition of "directional run" to be the same as "level run" in UAX #9.
