1. Lat01-12 font was set in version 1.9. Marking 01 represents ISO1, 12 represents the letter size. Some characters used in some Western European languages are printed incorrectly with lat01 font. In version 2.0 the default font was set to LatGrkCyr-8×16 -m 8859-1. This font has a larger letter size (no smaller selection) than lat01-12, but I noticed that the characters used by most Western European countries are printed correctly with this font, when en_US UTF-8 locale is set. I don't know much about the KBD software package that provides Peropesis with the fonts so maybe not the best solution has been made right now. Which font will be better? I'm also dissatisfied with the large letters on the screen, because it's just not comfortable working with the system. It should also be considered that perhaps the solution might not be to set a smaller font size, but to set a screen resolution. Hm?

2. I'm afraid that removing some fonts will only reduce the size of the ISO image a bit (du -h -s /usr/share/consolefonts command shows that the size of the fonts directory is only 533K). The size of the ISO could be greatly reduced (several megabytes) by removing any of the following software packages: locale, kernel modules, EFI image, linux firmware, gcc, binutils, but doing so would make the distribution lose its universatility. In this case, the solution could be as follows: anyone who wants to should independently edit the file system or the components of the ISO image and thus create their own personal operating system - peropesis. What do you think?

3. There is no clear strategy yet. Sorry, I'm not very familiar with the github and gitlab platforms, so I have no idea if there is any obvious benefit other than hosting by using them. Maybe you can provide a specific example/project?

Thanks for introducing sqlite. Does numlock auto-on works? I just used the setleds command in the /etc/profile file for that.
