I've been asked to make software being in DietPi, therefore I want to ask what package system do you use, and if you support PPA's or .deb repositories. Thank you. I have no time to install this untill I'll need to test. Thank you.

Jep, DietPi basically is Debian, so we use the APT package system for most software. We use other sources (or 3rd party APT repos/PPAs), if the Debian APT repo does not provide a certain software or it is very outdated.

Regularly update your packages via apt update && apt upgrade or use our error handled wrappers G_AGUP && G_AGUG.
