You gotta specify the period attribute, too.

schedule { 'publish_sched':
weekday => 'Thursday',
range   => '12:10 - 13:00',
repeat  => 1,
period  => 'weekly',
}


period => 'weekly' makes Puppet remember any application of a resource for up to a week. After a week the “tally chart” is cleared and resources may get applied up to repeat times.

As far as I understand the documentation, without specifying the period attribute, Puppet does not start counting, hence repeat doesn't show any effect. Quote: “The default is for resources to get applied every time Puppet runs.”
