Actually a Google search for "debconf5 dvd" will find them.

I think I see the problem: there are three rules for building VOBs from
sources with different extensions and if a source file is present then
the corresponding rule will be selected, but if it isn't present make
will always select the first rule and therefore attempt to download a
source file with that extension (.mpeg).  I originally made the target
of the download rule $(TITLE_SOURCES_DL), rather than using patterns,
which would have avoided that problem, but also resulted in the files
being downloaded even if they were already present!  Try replacing the
recoding rules with the following:


$(patsubst %.avi,$(BUILD_DIR)/%.vob,$(TITLE_SOURCES_AVI)) : $(BUILD_DIR)/%.vob : %.avi
$(patsubst %.mpeg,$(BUILD_DIR)/%.vob,$(TITLE_SOURCES_MPEG)) : $(BUILD_DIR)/%.vob : %.mpeg
$(patsubst %.mpg,$(BUILD_DIR)/%.vob,$(TITLE_SOURCES_MPG)) : $(BUILD_DIR)/%.vob : %.mpg

(Note, there must be a hard tab before "$(RECODE_COMMANDS)", not
spaces.)  The output of "make --dry-run DOWNLOAD=1" suggests that this
will work.

It's really better to leave the files as they are and make the Makefile
smarter, because people may have already downloaded the files with the
old names.  The only exception I'd make to this was for the filenames
with accents in, which were being treated differently by the different
web servers.
