That's the right place, the website files are in 'htdocs' (full path
'/home/project-web/boost-sandbox/htdocs'). If you have an ftp client
you prefer, you should use that, filezilla doesn't have the greatest
user interface. I just went for it as it was convenient.

I'd recommend using rsync, but failing that sftp is the next best
option. What I've been doing is uploading library files into 'libs' on
the site. So for library 'foo', I'd upload the contents of 'lib/foo/'
to 'htdocs/libs/foo/'. But only upload that directory so that it
doesn't mess with anything else on the server.

CVS is not used at all for the website.
