Some of the pricing models reflect based on the number of active contributors in a repository. For example, the CI/Pipeline integration is based on a model of who's contributing.

This snippet will assess unique contributors in the repo and based on a rough On-Demand pricing you can find on the website, roughly approx the impact to enabling this feature directly against this repository.
