Subject Re: Adding new data anonymization processor bundle
Date Wed, 20 Jun 2018 17:04:14 GMT
I think is a great idea, I filed a Jira [1] a while ago in case
someone wanted to start working on it (or in case I got a chance). It
mentions ARX but any Apache-friendly implementation is of course
welcome. I think it should be in its own bundle as it is functionality
separate from all our other bundles (and not ubiquitous enough to put
in the standard NAR).

Glad to hear you're interested in this, please feel free to reach out
with any questions and I too would be happy to review any
