[talk-ph] Poorly tagged features in Guagua area

Dear everyone,

I've edited large sections of Guagua using the appropriate tags.  I
described my edits in the above changeset discussion:
"Hi Ate chat980, I've edited an area to demonstrate the proper tags:
For example:
for farmlands, we use the tags: landuse=farm and crop=rice. No need to
add the name=Ricefield.
for fisponds, we use the tags: landuse=aquaculture, natural=water. No
need to add the name=fishpond
for residential areas: no need to add the tag name=houses unless there
is a specific name for that residential area."

I think what's wrong with her edits is the use of the name tag to
describe the feature. @Aldwin are you using this for your maps?
