Washington Post recipe broken

Hello, first post, I hope I picked the right forum.

Since getting my Kindle for the holidays, I have been enjoying receiving the Washington Post every day via the Calibre recipe created by Kovid Goyal and Sujata Raman.

Unfortunately, this last week, I have been receiving the March 13th edition of the Post every day. It's like the movie Groundhog Day, except that the lead story is always "Japan begins grim relief mission with towns flooded, thousands reported missing."

I heard the Washington Post updated their website last week - maybe they changed something about the RSS feeds and thus broke the recipe? I notice Wall Street Journal (Free) and Seattle Times download from Cailbre seem to work fine and give the latest articles, so I really think this is just an issue with the Washington Post recipe.

(1) How can I notify those who created the recipe that I think I've discovered a problem?

(2) On a different note, is it possible in Calibre to adjust their recipe for my personal tastes? They left out the local Metro section, and the only sports they included were Redskins articles. (I'm a big Caps fan.) I imagine this type of question about adjusting recipes has been asked before, so I was hoping someone could provide a link.

Thank you for any help.

Could you tell me how can I find the Washington Post recipe created by Kovid Goyal and Sujata Raman? I'm a newbie.

In my calibre, the recipe is created by Darko Miletic. Some articles can be fetched only by providing a Washington Post accout, but there's no way to fill in username and password in this recipe.

That recipe no longer exists, the current one is the one by Darko.
