Most active GitHub users (git.io/top)

The count of contributions (summary of Pull Requests, opened issues and commits) to public repos at GitHub.com from Sat, 29 Jun 2013 00:57:40 GMT till Sun, 29 Jun 2014 00:57:40 GMT.

Only first 1000 GitHub users according to the count of followers are taken. This is because of limitations of GitHub search. Sorting algo in pseudocode:

githubUsers
  .filter((user) -> user.followers > 62)
  .sortBy('contributions')
  .slice(0, 256)

Made with data mining of GitHub.com (raw data, script) by @paulmillr with contribs of @lifesinger. Updated once per week.

There is something wrong in this. I have 1286 contributions in this period, but does not show up in this list.

sl commented Jul 2, 2014

Santhoshtr, as stated in the header at the top of the file, because of the limitations on Github's search queries, only users with a certain amount of followers (in this case greater than 62) are considered for inclusion in the list. You can see the limitation being set in the search query.
