But I don't know it meets our expectation. Because the higher roles can reduce the `remainingAdditional`, I think the remaining number should be only set to `updatedLimits` but not added to `updatedLimits`. This matches the documentation `Require that at least N users with given role (defaults to Author) review the pull request`, especially the key work `at least`.

Unless there is a corner case that I haven't hit, the implementation is working as expected now. I will need to look at your proposed change more closely, but I don't see the need to change the existing logic.

What problem are you trying to solve?
