To all current and aspiring IPython kernel developers,

We are working on updating the message specification to clean up some of
the Python or IPython-specific bits, especially in completion and
introspection messages.

The IPEPs describing the proposed changes:

- [IPEP 13: msg spec updates](
https://github.com/ipython/ipython/wiki/IPEP-13%3A-Updating-the-Message-Spec
)
- [IPEP 24: completion and object_info](
https://github.com/ipython/ipython/wiki/IPEP-24%3A-completion-and-object_info
)
- The [Pull Request](https://github.com/ipython/ipython/pull/4536)
implementing the changes, where discussion should take place.

Now is the time to bring up problems that the message spec doesn't address
for you.

I will write a translator shim, so that kernels don't all need to update
right away, but that will come after the discussion on the proposed changes
has settled.
