this group does not contain any file related to tutorials. It was a group built for coordinating people attending the first cp2k tutorial.

cp2k files of the second tutorial are not officially on the web. The major reason is that they are raw files (just inputs and outputs), almost 2.5 GB in size,
with no explanation/documentation and therefore not suitable as self-lerning material (unless you do know already a bit of cp2k).

I would suggest to stay tuned and apply to the third cp2k tutorial, or alternatively just try with something that is of any interest for you and post your question
to this group.
