Variants are pointers to specific Versions. Variants can point to one or more Versions. Right now, we have the following type of Variants:
Author Variant. Version tip for a particular Author.

Custom Variant. The user selects different Variants manually. The merging process merges all the changes from the selected variables, creating a new view.
