Thank you very much, David, for pointing out that there was a problem with the eBible.org repository. It turns out that the ftp server was failing to follow a symbolic link, probably due to a "security" update. (Yes, following symbolic links CAN be a security risk, but this was a breaking change that I wasn't aware of until just now.) Anyway, we are back in service. The Blackfoot Matthew module is listed under the language autonym (Siksika).
