Developers can contribute to multiple repositories and to multiple integrations. Additionally, developers can maintain multiple Git registrations with different email addresses.
Therefore, in order to main a unique number of contributors, the count is collected per integration, and each contributor is counted by their registered email address; alternatively, if the user did not use a mail, they are counted by their user name. This is similar to the functionality when you run <code>git log</>.
Because of this, Snyk does not sum the total contributors together for all integrations as this would lead to inaccurate numbers, with some developers being counted more than once.
