I don't think org-mode supports repeated entries with an end date (but I
could be wrong there).  For cases where I can just let it repeat forever
I just make one weekly repeater entry for each day (i.e. Monday,
Wednesday, Friday would be 3 tasks, which repeat weekly.)

It's not very elegant but it works (for me).

Maybe someone else on the list has a better idea...
