While I increased a few deadlines, you picked a bad example:
Your proposed timeframe for Dictionary Manual was "3-4 days", see
I turned your "4 days" into "100 hours". 
I think that's quite appropriate (4 hours more).

In general: It doesn't hurt anybody if a student hands in the work
earlier, plus having more time for reviews/iterations. 
Plus keep in mind the time it takes to set up infrastructure (e.g.
learning git, understand required applications etc, Learning curve, time
zones, etc).
