This thread is related to the arivac bohol tagging.  I'm forwarding
this to the list so that bohol mappers can catch-up on the discussion.
 Thanks to rally for pointing this out.

Hi,

(I think this message should be on the talk-ph list, so that Bohol
mappers should be in the loop.  I'll answer some anyway.)

The source data didn't have a separate tag for various POIs.  For
example, Eatery/Restaurant/Bakery/Coffee was lump into a single POI
type, hence, I used a temporary tag amenity=fast_food.  I suppose the
ARIVAC project didn't saw the need to separate them.  Anyway, it is up
to the local mappers to add the appropriate tag.

> Item 22 - (separate tags for motorcycle & bicycle shops) & auto_supply

>
> Item 25 - Hotel (tourism=hotel); Resort (tourism=resort); budget
