Reviewer comments

I reveiwed the submission, I verified the data formats, I added the description, I contacted the publisher re- bulk and was pointed to the linked datasets. Accessing some data in a bulk download is not feasible, only large corporations could handle the volume of the data from the CSO, it will be important to qualify this response per data type.
