I am here relaying an interesting message from Richard Cantwell of 
www.geographic.ie who had originally posted it to help.openstreetmap.org:


Hi All,

As of today a new country has been born, South Sudan. You can see the 
general border of the country on The Guardian DataBlog site here:


It looks like the UN will formally admit the country as a recognised 
state on the 14th July:


If anybody has details of the exact border this might be a nice addition 
to the map, as I expect other online maps won't be updated for quite 
some time, but perhaps addition should be held off until formal 
ratification by the UN.
