Sounds good.  (I assume you are sure totem, rhythmbox, audacity and
gazpacho are stable and likely will be around for the next, say, 3
years; I don't know these tools well enough myself).  Care for preparing
a patch?

Please keep in mind: changing stuff in the flyer is expensive: we have 8
translations in risk of getting out of sync.  There are probably piles
of printed flyers getting out of date.  Therefore, try to keep the
text as time-resistant as possible.  So, I'd say:

 consists of 2 DVDs or more than 14 CDs.
