Hi Tony,

I've chopped it about a bit now.  I've replaced the back-cover text
with (slightly modified for the sake of positioning) text taken from
some parts of Ubuntu.com.  I've also replaced the CoF with the
officially sanctioned versions and the Ubuntu text with the officially
sanctioned versions.  I have also used the Ubuntu font for the
majority of the text.  I've removed the QR code.  Here's the new,
updated version:

The "folder" containing my Ubuntu-related images (including the
original, from yesterday) is here:

Can we please note that Paul's original discussion was related to the
use of QRcodes on Ubuntu CD wallets.  I have removed the QRcode from
this DVD case insert because I'm not sure it's particularly useful in
the situation that these discs will be used.  Although what I have
produced here is a DVD case insert, so kinda related, I believe the
two discussions (this one, and mine regarding DVD Booklets) have
become somewhat entangled.

Incidentally, if anyone wants the Gimp XCF file for this DVD case
insert, let me know and I'll upload it someplace.
