If you simply close the component pattern, it will continue to show up in
check-in, even though no issues will be predicted. This could prove to be
a nuisance. To avoid this, you could delete the component (and lose data)
or rename the component something that is unlikely to get searched in
check-in (like "zzjournal of former title").

You don't ever plan to use Voyager to make or record payment information?
If you do, you must approve the PO, and once it's approved, you cannot add
a new line item. You can only add line items while the PO has the pending
We create a new PO but give it the same PO number as the previous one, with
a suffix of "a" (or "b" or "c", if there have been several title changes).
