1- Introduction to Database fix for 3rd party extensions
In J and Beyond 2017 (Krakow), there was a session “JAB17 - Case Study : Giving a Joomla face to EkStep - a unique education platform” where Ashwin Date commented that he was planning to submit a PR remarkably similar to one of the features of this our GSoC Project, that I’m planning to implement: Database fix for 3rd party extensions, you can check it here https://youtu.be/BTzVec2hGNo?t=34m34s
Before the weekly meeting of the project, we had a meeting (Me, Anibal Sanchez and Nicola Galgano) with Ashwin to discuss more what was made in this project so far. He presented the feature itself and also the UI.
This meeting was short because I was very busy this week, studying for the final exams and delivering my last practical work. Overall, I couldn’t do much. I plan to continue with the roadmap the following weeks.

The technical notes related to “Option to edit the update sites” has been officially reviewed by the core team, It will be ready to PR to joomla-cms/4.0-dev branch as soon as I write the PR.
