I've found some issues with the Dragora website.

The first link in the “Downloading Dragora” section on the index page is
broken. That's because it would actually have to point to


and not




That said, I'd probably rethink the naming of that directory. You could
just say “iso”, maybe. But then, installation images don't need to be
ISO images, do they? Some distributions have a “release” directory.
Maybe, “install” or just “inst” would be viable as well.

The directory "ISOs" refers to files ending with the extension .iso,
along with checksums.  This is capitalized respecting the nomenclature
plus the "s" was added to imply that it can be in plural (more than one

There should be other people's opinions in case they are confused or do
not understand it as to try to change it or add more information about
it, I guess.


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.

Yes, I think we can rename it to "iso-images" or "releases", what do you say?.

This is a minor issue, but it strikes me every time I visit dragora.org: Lists are set in a serif font instead of a sans-serif one like all other text. I presume this is not done on purpose. It's apparently caused by
the font-family setting for the ul and ol HTML elements in the site's
style sheet.

I've removed the font-size for now, please could you check?.

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?

I don't know much about CSS or HTML, but I'd like to learn more. Skipping the learning, which is why I recently hired the services of Chris F.A Johnson (thanks to the Dragora donations), a person who does know the subject. Chris is still molding and shaping the site to add content, maybe I can ask him how to resolve this issue in case you can't. But if you're sure you can work it out, go ahead!
