There are few major problems with repositories having large number of files:
- it may take hours to review
- review may generate very high number of issues making it counter-productive to resolve
To provide consistent feedback loop we are actively limiting reviewed file count to 5K. Files are selected based on update date, number of changes (churn) and line count - this is to make sure that important files are included.
Also, these files do not count towards limit:
- with unrecognized language
- ignored by user
- ignored by CodeFactor (auto-generated, library, etc.)
