Thanks everyone. It seems Gabriel's method of running IPython works. I
forgot to mention this is on a system with IPython already installed
system-wide. Here is the difference running from the root directory of the
repository with ipython installed in a virtualenv:

Output of "print IPython.sys_info()"

after running IPython with $ python -m IPython notebook

{'codename': 'An Afternoon Hack',
 'commit_hash': '2dd6b4d',
 'commit_source': 'repository',
 'default_encoding': 'UTF-8',
 'ipython_path': '/Users/ajrenold/Dropbox/Code/ipython/IPython',
 'ipython_version': '2.0.0-dev',
 'os_name': 'posix',
 'platform': 'Darwin-12.4.0-x86_64-i386-64bit',
 'sys_executable': '/Users/ajrenold/Dropbox/Code/ipython/venv/bin/python',
 'sys_platform': 'darwin',
 'sys_version': '2.7.2 (default, Oct 11 2012, 20:14:37) \n[GCC 4.2.1

and after running with $ ipython notebook

 'default_encoding': 'UTF-8',

Looks like I'm already out of date compared to today's most recent commit!

Also, thank you for all of the comments on the completion system. I was
planning to contribute to completer.js and was not aware of IPEP 11: Tab
Completion System
Refactor<https://github.com/ipython/ipython/wiki/IPEP-11:-Tab-Completion-System-Refactor>.
I'll take a look at IPEP 11 in more detail to see if it is something I can
contribute to.
