Yes, that should be fixed (I think it is in the manual sources but the
above URL should also be corrected, not sure of the details of how/when it
is updated)

Two new bug reports please. The lvm one should be against partman-auto-lvm
and the exim preseed documentation I'm not sure...either file a bug
against installation-reports and someone will reassign it or ask on the
debian-boot mailing list.

As for the LVM error, please include more information when you file the
bug report...what setup did you have (which partitions, which were using
LVM, how was LVM configured, etc) better too much information than too

And please keep the bug report addresses CC:ed when replying with more
information :)

Thanks for your efforts in debugging and testing the installer.
