having ccsm in the repos i fail to see what's the advantage to install an alien pkg, that sooner or later will be the reason of incompatibilities or even breakages.

Just for the not so intelligent, read computer savvy: what the hell is ccsm and for what is it helpful? It might be a good practice to have such information in one or two lines as first lines on every Howto.

Thanks for thinking a bit about what I am asking.
