After I wrote that I remembered I had a book on Madhyandina 
Shuklayajurveda padapatha by Yudhishthira Mimamsaka and it has a Sanskrit 
introduction where he says it is also by Shakalya not Katyayana as I 
wrote.  I also made a mistake about the Taittireya Krishnayajurveda pada 
patha is by one Atreya not Shakalya as I wrote

He also says the (kauthuma) Samaveda padapatha is jointly by Shakalya and 
Gargya.  It is no longer known who did the atharvaveda pada patha and 
other shakhas because their traditions are so disrupted.

Unfortunately I can't really help with printed editions only ever having 
been interested in my own shakha and not in printed books even with that.
