Support for 'every other' repeating tasks (e.g. 'every other weekday', 'every other year', etc)

hubs says:

it would be noice if you could add an "every other" command that could be added to any repeating task creating the ability to make tasks due:

every other weekday
every other year
every other 3rd wednesday of the month (soon)
etc.

Sure, we can look at adding this.

I know that 'every other' would usually mean 'every 2nd' ('every other week' = 'every 2nd week').

What does 'every other weekday' mean though? Would it mean 'every mon, wed, and fri', or something else?

If anyone who uses 'other' could explain this (we don't use it in Australia), this would be appreciated :)

yeah, it would mean every mon, wed, fri the first week and every tue and thur the next week.

for some months every other wednesday would fall on the first week and for others it would fall on the second week depending.

Ah, I thought it would alternate each week, but just wanted to confirm this -- thanks for the explanation!

I'd really like to see this :

"Every 2nd Tuesday of the month"

Taking it one step further :

"Every last Friday of the month"

And a logical progression might be :

"Every last Friday of every other month".

I like timlewis_atlanta's idea. Being able to specify a spot in a month would be really handy.
