Ok. I tried a crack at checking/fixing the Oriental Mindoro place node and
found out that this is much harder than I thought.
First, I tried confirming whether there's a place node for Oriental Mindoro.
Doing this with Potlatch is impossible so I used Merkaartor and serially
downloaded the data in the area of Oriental Mindoro. I found no node and
decided that there was none in the first place so I added the node.
Then on a whim, I tried the OSM Name Finder despite its outdated data and
found that there was indeed an existing node, except that it was located
in Occidental Mindoro (which was why I didn't find it in the first place).
So I deleted the node I added earlier and moved this existing node in its
place. In the process, I renamed the existing node from "Mindoro Oriental"
to "Oriental Mindoro" and removed the tags pertaining to the GNS import
since the coordinates no longer match that of the GNS database, which was
the source for the original import.
I think doing this is easier with JOSM and with a planet.osm Philippine
extract but I refuse to install a Java virtual machine on my old computer.
