      Description

      As stated in the Puppet documentation (http://docs.puppetlabs.com/windows/writing.html#scheduledtaskscheduledtask), the "scheduled_task" resource type does not support repetition modes such as "every X minutes".

      It is a pity, because such tasks are very commonly used in Windows servers (and maybe less on Windows clients), making "scheduled_task" not so useful.

      It is true that the configuration of Windows scheduled task is complicated (as opposed to crontab...); we may not need all the features available in the Windows GUI (like "Until", "Duration" or "If the task is still running, stop it at this time"), I guess it would be enough to support "every X minutes" and "every Y hours".
