I just discovered that partman-auto-lvm debconf templates do not contain sublevel markers. Therefore, all its templates' strings are gathered in sublevel 1 (high priority stuff). While I agree this is OK for the automatic partitioning entry (which appears on every install), I think this is incorrect for other templates. LVM stuff falls in the "high profile feature for all architectures" category, which qualifies it for sublevel 3. Patch attached. Please comment (Frans, particularly) and hopefully commit if OK. --
