Thanks for all your good work, and mega metta!
About "The Authenticity of the Early Buddhist Texts".
If you want to, I can print off several copies, and ship them to Bodhinyana Monastery.
Well, it's just an idea. Let me know whether you would like to. And if so, how many copies? A4 format?
Here it is (unfortunately this page just lists numbered volumes without indication of contents):
List of contents here:
Contains the Vinaya, the five Nikayas, the seven books of the Abhidhamma, and some other works like the Visuddhimagga, Questions of Milinda and Dīpavamsa.
Having all this online and freely available could be quite a significant moment in modern Chinese Buddhism, who knows. Only time will tell.
It seems like this is only hosted on the new version of the CBETA site (tripitaka.cbeta.org rather than www.cbeta.org linked to on suttacentral). I'm not sure whether you still have the ability to link to specific lines of text in the new version, as you do in the old.
It would be nice if we could download the Suttas (PDF files) in order to print them out -- especially the suttas in Pāli. Reading Pali on screen is really tiring.
Otherwise, thank you again for your wonderful job. Sādhu, sādhu, sādhu.

The Sanskrit version of the Pāli Kaccānagotta Sutta (SN 12.15) is complete rather than fragmentary. It is part of a fragment of the Sanskrit Samyuktāgama which contains a number of complete texts.
The reference is: Tripāṭhī, Chandra. (Ed.) (1962). ‘Fünfundzwanzig Sūtras Des Nidānasaṃyukta’ in Sanskrittexte aus den Turfanfunden (Vol. VIII). Edited by Ernst Waldschmidt. Berlin: Akademie-Verlag, 1962. [Includes translation into German]: 167-170.
My translation of the Sanskrit is here: http://www.jayarava.org/texts/Sanskrit-Katyayana-Sutra.pdf
