I've provided a few files for the materials database website.
Ignore this please. I'll upload the files to GIT.
Please ignore this. I'll upload the files elsewhere
GSoC patches should be posted here just so students are familiar with the process that others are using and familiarized with how to create proper patch files. That is a useful basic skill that extends to most open source projects too, regardless of the version control system being used. Using git or other hosting services is fine for some purposes, especially your own open source projects, but would ultimately be busy-work for GSoC since the goal isn't to just use something you're familiar with. Being proficient with patch files is a basic skill and a good one to learn proficiently.
Few source files for the Materials Database Website
I'm sorry I wasn't familiar with using this CVS. I have uploaded a .rar file containing a few php source files.
It's fine. Especially for a change like yours where you're adding new files and not to an existing repository, you'd end up providing either a patch file, a tarball, or a shell-script archive file.
We haven't used CVS (concurrent versions system) in many years. A VCS is the general term for a version control system (like svn, git, cvs, etc).
Thanks for providing the rar file. It'll get a looking over in more detail over the next few days. You're welcome to provide updates if needed in the meantime. Someone will comment when it's reviewed.
Thanks. I tend to mix the terms up at times; hope it wasn't a bother.
