API REST do GITHUB - Dúvida na lista de contribuintes do respositório


I’m using a GITHUB REST API to list contributors to a repository.

I took the repository as an example: FortAwesome/Font-Awesome

When accessing the general page of the repository it appears that there are 93 contributors. And when I enter the contributors link, there are only 7 contributors. API returns me 7 contributors.

Can you explain that to me? Why in one place does it say that the repository has 93 contributors and in another there are only 7?

Repository link - 93 contributors: GitHub - FortAwesome/Font-Awesome: The iconic SVG, font, and CSS toolkit

Contributors page link - 7 contributors: Contributors to FortAwesome/Font-Awesome · GitHub


From my understanding a contributor may be who

1.Created a commit
2.Created an issue
3.Created a pull request
4.Created the repository
5.Reviewed a pull request

Blog Reference

This is why it is showing 93 in the Repo page.

To explain about the Contributors page link(7 Contributor) as you can see in the reference image it will just show Contributions commited to master branch
