This book has two parts.
The first part consists of an introduction to CSS.
It explains how to compile CSS from sources,
how to install it, how to perform the initial setup
of the archive and alarm system.
It is meant to serve as a guide for those who need
to install, maintain and extend CSS.
The second part of the book has reference chapters
for selected plugins.
