I wouldn't do it on percentage of contributors, since the majority of
contributors never contribute anything.

Instead I would do it based on percentages of contributions, while
there is a lot of user contributing some changes, there is a limited
number contributing most changes.

If you want suggestions on numbers, I would suggest no less than 90%
of data contributed, I'm guessing this will be about 5-10% of users.
