Sounds good.

Starting with some references:
Docs: https://open.med.harvard.edu/wiki/display/SCRUBBER/3.X <https://open.med.harvard.edu/wiki/display/SCRUBBER/3.X>
Publication: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1472-6947/13/112/abstract <http://www.biomedcentral.com/1472-6947/13/112/abstract>
 (check out the supplemental material as well for additional details on running and improvements)
SVN (old, standalone, Scrubber v.3.x): https://open.med.harvard.edu/wiki/display/SCRUBBER/Software
SVN (initial apache port to ctakes sandbox): https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ctakes/sandbox/ctakes-scrubber-deid/

The project started off as a standalone process and became a UIMA pipeline (outside of ctakes).
The plan had always been to port this to an optional ctakes module but we never got that fully

Some of the parts that need the most attention to get going:
working with the ctakes type system
pulling out weka (ML lib) for an asf 2.0 friendly lib instead
simpler process for building the models.

Regarding knowledge, its good to be familiar with java, UIMA, decision trees, and ctakes.
Likely in that order.

While this is still in the sandbox and you are still getting familiar with running it as a
standalone app feel free to ping me and andy off-list if thats more convenient.
Then we can definitely bring it back to the dev list while getting it running in ctakes.
