Re: [Orgmode] repeating within a range

Hi Austin,

this is not supported, and I do not have plans to put it in.  You
can either directly insert the several dates explicitly,
or define a repeating date and then just delete it once it is over.

If you really need this functionality,
I think it would be relatively easy to hack this, using a diary sexp
entry. Start with either diary-cyclic, or with diary-float, add additional
arguments for the end date, and then see how dates are handled and
change the function to deal with the end date.

Hope this helps.

I'd like to specify that an event repeats weekly, but only for a month.
Ideally, I'd also be able to specify a time for the weekly event.  Is
there currently a way to say "this event happens every Thursday in July
From 17:00-19:00"?

Given the new time range syntax from 4.78, I wonder if something like
the following might work

<2007-07-06--2007-26-31 17:00--19:00 +1w>

I changed the time range to also use -- as the range indicator to
provide some consistency across the date and time specifications.  It's
fine with me if that changes back to 17:00-19:00.

Another option would be to use a diary sexp.  I'm not aware of a
built-in diary function that accomplishes the above goal, but if anyone
can show me how to do this with a <%%()> timestamp I'd really appreciate
