I added two tickets to my map team’s tracker:
* One for adding the MSP challenge https://github.com/TelenavMapping/Community_involvement/issues/13 <https://github.com/TelenavMapping/Community_involvement/issues/13> 
* One for looking at adding a challenge to look at new roads from TIGER https://github.com/TelenavMapping/Community_involvement/issues/14 <https://github.com/TelenavMapping/Community_involvement/issues/14>
