All,    (01)

Peter and I set up the Invoice concept Wiki page.  It can be found at
     http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?UblOntology/Invoice    (02)

The approach that we took was to first consolidate the various 
definitions of Invoice that have been passed around.  Once we have 
settled on the "official" Ontolog definition for invoice, we expect 
that the material copied from forum postings can be removed.    (03)

We thought about trying to reflect some sort of structure (e.g., 
class hierarchy) either on the concept page or across concept 
pages.  This proved to be problematic for a number of reasons.  As a 
result, the Wiki page includes a Related Concepts section, but the 
concepts are only listed without any regard to the ways that they are 
related.    (04)

As we populated the Related Concepts section with examples, we 
identified a number of issues which should be addressed by the team 
in the near term.  The most critical ones are:    (05)

1) Determining the naming conventions that we will use for the 
concepts.  A number of alternatives are listed on the Wiki page.    (06)

2) Ensuring that the concepts that we are defining map cleanly to the 
concepts identified by the UBL committee.  Toward this end, I 
populated the Related Concepts section with the concepts listed in 
the appropriate version 0.7 analysis spreadsheet.    (07)

A Specifications has also been provided.  Although it isn't populated 
at this time, we expect it to contain (or link) to matching 
representations (Protoge, KIF, XML Schema, etc.).    (08)

Please review this page with an eye to using the resulting page 
structure as a model for "all" concept pages.    (09)
