New York Times recipe broken?

In the last few days I have been unable to download the NYT. Calibre returns an error:

IndexError: list index out of range

Is anyone else having the same problem?

Thank you.

There's an error in the version currently being served. To correct it, you can either manually patch the recipe or download a patched version.

To manually patch the recipe:
  • Click 'Fetch news ↓ Add custom news source'
  • Click 'Customize builtin recipe'
  • Select 'The New York Times (subscription)', click 'OK'
  • Find these lines, about 33 lines from the top:
    Code:
        # excludeSectionKeywords = ['Dining','Weddings']
        excludeSectionKeywords = []
  • Make it look like this:
    Code:
        excludeSectionKeywords = ['Dining','Weddings']
        #excludeSectionKeywords = []
  • Note that you can use this line to exclude specific sections
  • Click 'Add/update recipe'
  • Click 'Close'
  • Click 'Fetch News'
  • From the Custom list, select 'The New York Times'
  • Add your user login/password
  • Click 'Download now'

To download and install the patched version:
(Removed - no longer current)
  • Download the zipped recipe to your computer by clicking the link above
  • Unzip it to your desktop
  • Click 'Fetch news ↓ Add custom news source'
  • Click 'Load recipe from file'
  • Select the unzipped NYTimes.recipe from your desktop
  • Click 'Close'
  • Click 'Fetch News'
  • From the Custom list, select 'The New York Times'
  • Add your user login/password
  • Click 'Download now'

I've submitted the patch to Kovid, it should be online within a day or so.
