I didn't complete the changes I had hoped to last week. These
address several of these issues below...

I'll move this into its own category. I didn't expect this to be
recurring so making it into a subcategory didn't seem apparent at
first, but I will move this so it reports a bit better.

When issuing an invoice you have to specify what kind of "service or
product" the charges on the invoice will go against. These in turn
are tied to specific accounts. In this case it was likely just the
different service/product types that moved them into different
accounts. I can take a look at clearing this up too.

For FOSS4G 2008 but not for me - this was for hosting the board
meeting - venue rental, catering services, support, networking, etc.
Putting it under Professional Fees --> Meetings seemed natural, but
we can move it if needed.

Right, I didn't complete voiding the invoices yet. Sorry for the
confusion. I'm on it now...
