I couldn't wait for a detailed description of the primary sources tool.
Thanks a lot to the authors for mentioning the StrepHit soccer dataset!

I was confused about that too. "the [Primary Sources] tool has been
used by more than a hundred users who performed about
90,000 approval or rejection actions. More than 14 million
statements have been uploaded in total." I think that means that ≤ 90,000
items or statements were added of 14 million available to be add through
Primary Sources tool.
