Contributors

Codigy groups all contributors into following categories:

Owner:

Developers who contributed over 40% lines of code in the past 6 months.

Owners help maintain order and reduce the number of potential issues. Files without an owner carry a higher risk for refactoring or new feature development.

Significant contributor:

Developers with good knowledge of the file. They contributed about 20% - 40% lines of code in the past 6 months.

Having 1-2 significant contributors in the file improves bus factor as such contributors can replace the owner in extreme circumstances.

Ordinary contributor:

Developers with some knowledge of the file. They contributed about 5% - 20% lines of code in the past 6 months.

Such contributors don’t improve the bus factor but can bring disorder and defects in the file if there are too many of them.

Micro contributor:

Developers with very little knowledge of the file. They contributed less than 5% lines of code in the past 6 months.

With the exception of some edge cases, they increase disorder and number of defects in the file.
