I've just looked through the docs for that, and it is mentioned as 'repeat',
ie not plural. However this is one of those that were put in as an attempt
at "future proofing", and as I mentioned before they can all be omitted.

The only ones you need are those listed for log_transaction.

I'm in the process of doing a new version, both for their new API and
also to handle their problem with duplicate orders (what happens is
that they send back an 'empty' response, which IC reads as failure
and so the customer resends the order. However Protx have taken
the money at their end, even though they don't say so, and have
no system for checking duplicate payments. The result is irate
customers ...). It also checks for their availability (they have their
share of outages) and optionally logs the transaction offline for
you to complete manually later - generally thought to be better
than telling the customer to come back later.  If you want to try
this one then I'll send it offlist.
