Hi Mark,

I have finally looked over your PEP carefully, and I am in favor of accepting it. I have two tiny edits that I will submit as a PR later. I am willing to act as a PEP sponsor. Do you think you will want to get more feedback or should we then just submit it for acceptance to the Steering Council?

Hi All,
I want to announce the submission of a new typing PEP, for ParameterSpecifications (https://github.com/python/peps/pull/1259).  We discussed this concept at the last typing summit (presentation can be found here https://github.com/facebook/pyre-check/blob/master/docs/Variadic_Type_Variables_for_Decorators_and_Tensors.pdf), and there seemed to be general consensus on the utility of this idea, and the appropriateness of the particular solution.

One note that I know there was some disagreement on was the name for the feature itself, with some folks preferring ArgSpec.  I wrote up a brief note in the PEP itself why we're not as big fans of that name, but I'd love to hear all of your opinions on this issue, as well as on anything else in the PEP.
