A few more thoughts on this from my side:

I think that adding an “s” to indicate a plural there is unnecessary. I
mean, “ISOs” is more of a sloppy plural for “ISO images” or “ISO files”,
isn't it? Also, I'm pretty sure the future manual will clearly state
where to get Dragora installation images from, so you probably won't
have a lot of people wandering around in the rsync repository and
wondering where to find them.

Additionally, if ISO is referring to the file format, which it is, it
should better not be pluralized, IMO. Debian, for example, has its page
about CD and DVD images at https://www.debian.org/CD/, which is
reasonable because it refers to the format or kind of the medium. I'd
say the same holds for ISO images.

Well, the issue wasn't actually with the font sizes. Font sizes for
lists were fine, but are a bit odd now. The problem is that the
font-family settings throughout the style sheet are a bit confused. The
visible effect of that is that lists (at least ol and ul) as well as
block quotes will be displayed in a serif font, not in a sans-serif font
like the rest of the text. I think the site would be better readable if
everything just were sans-serif.

I could take care of fixing up the style sheet a bit if that's okay with
you. If so, what would be the best way to handle this?
