I updated the page for the progress:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Philippines/Data_import_Arivac_Bohol

So far, we have the basic road data in shapefile.  We (totor and me)
translated the POI codes into OSM tags (link to the Google spreadsheet
in the wiki).  Please correct and wikify the codes.
