 This app aims to help you anonymize data in a database used for development.
 
 It is common practice in develpment to use a database that is very similar in
-content to the real data. The problem is that this can lead to have copies of

+content to the real data. The problem is that this can lead to having copies of

+to anonymize data in your models.
 
 The basic method is go through all the models that you specify, and generate
 fake data for all the fields specified. Introspection of the models will produce
 an anonymizer that will attempt to provide sensible fake data for each field,
-leaving you to fill in the gaps.

 Please note that the methods provided will not provide full anonymity. Even if

   functions for generating fake data.

   adding any filtering. You can override any of the public methods defined in
   ``anonymizer.base.Anonymizer`` in order to do filtering and other
   customization.
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
