My apologies, I've somehow missed the last posts.
Thank you for the recordings, Françoise, thank you for PL, Gilles.
In general it is not a very good idea to re-record the text completely when there are only some mistakes. It's a bit of a waste of time. You could work on another recording in that time. Editing is not so very difficult when you know how to do it. Maybe Phil's video can help you? You can find all of Phil's videos here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Instructional_Videos
Do you know that you can make Audacity "talk" French? To change the language to French, click on Edit / Preferences / interface and in the language drop down select French. Makes orientation much easier.
I did the spot check for Légende de Saint Julien l'Hospitalier.
I agree that the minor mistakes don't need to be edited and the edits you did are all fine. But there is a problem with the disclaimer. I only noticed now that the former BC ekzemplaro has unfortunately changed the normal LV procedure. The disclaimer in the first post should only be used for very short text up to 500 words and for poetry. In all other cases there should be the normal long LV disclaimer. I'd say, for the Maupassant and the Voltaire we leave it as it is now. But for the Flaubert it would be good to have the full disclaimer.

Françoise, could you please record a new intro. Title by author and disclaimer. I will edit it into your recording.
About the noise:
I hear it too, but for me it isn't a big distraction. It depends on the earphones, I guess. You could try to avoid it in the future. That kind of noise often comes from other hardware connected to the computer like printer, additional external hard drive and such. Could you try and disconnect/switch off everything you don't need during recording? Or if you record on a notebook, try recording with battery power or if you do, not with battery power?
About the volume:
Yes, it's much too loud. The audio is clipping and gets distorted in places. You need to make you input volume lower, before you do any further recordings. If you tell me your operating system I get an English or French explanation on how to do that. I can only explain that in German, I'm afraid. I will take care of the volume in Légende when I edit in the new disclaimer.
It is quite easy to reduce the volume after recording, but that is not good enough for the future because distorted audio stays distorted. And we want you to sound as good as possible.
The file names need to be uniform all over the project or the don't sort properly on players. For the next two sections please use msw011_legendedesaintjulien#_flaubert_fra_128kb.mp3
