Dear maintainer,

nodm.postinst should not write to stdout, since messages written to
stdout may confuse debconf. See the following snippnet from
debconf-devel(7) man page[1]:

    Avoid outputting anything to stdout in your postinst, since that can
    confuse debconf, and postinst should not be verbose anyway. Output
    to stderr is ok, if you must.
