Debian is currently frozen. And in Ubuntu I am not planning to go
ahead of Debian (unstable/experimental).
You should talk to Debian lvm2 maintainers to get lvm2 updated in
experimental if that's a pre-requisite for your package.

I didn't review your package yet.

While packaging in git is good, can you please generate a debian
source package and upload it into a dgetable location? E.g.
mentors.debian.net ? (that website also checks for common errors ahead
of sponsors).
