Not much, but seemingly implementation-wise I have finished my GSoC project:
Finish the implementation of wheels' parallel download (GH-8771)
pip's CI green again (GH-8790)
Reformat a few spots in user guide (GH-8795)
I got sick, but I am recovering now!
I will try to spend the time I got left within the scope of GSoC to improve cache usage of the fast-deps feature.
