[IPython-dev] iPython 3 vs Jupyter etc

Hi John, 

No, IPython will not merge with Jupyterhub. 
Jupyterhub will be the way to use Jupyter in  multiuser environment. 

IPython will be split into many sub projects. You will be able to use 
ipython terminal shell without Jupyter. 

Basically after 3.0 is released we will create (roughly) the following repo. 

IPython (the terminal shell) 
IPython (the kernel that works with Notebook, qtconsole)

I wrote a bit about that :

Thomas already responded to you while I was writing that. 
So no, Jupyter is not a fork. We are Jupyter.
As you need to install tornado to have IPython notebook, 
you will just need more dependencies. 

The "renaming"  is just here to make people understand that
we are not only Python, we have ~26 kernels (cf ipython wiki)

Does that make sens ?
