Project not setting Github Commit Status after repo ownership change

We recently changed ownership on one of our repositories and it now seems that Appveyor is not setting the Github Commit Status correctly for builds. The original repository was SalesforceFoundation/CumulusCI which is now located at SFDO-Tooling/CumulusCI. I edited the "Github repository" field under Settings for the project which seems to have made our webhook trigger builds. However, the commit status is not set.

Example of a build that should have set a commit status but did not:

    Is it possible that in the course of changing ownership of the repository in GitHub the permissions of the GitHub user authorized in AppVeyor were altered such that they no longer have permissions to set commit status in the repo?

    I believe the user is me and I still have admin access on the repository. However, I was having a hard time figuring out how to find the Github authorization anywhere in the project settings. Is there somewhere I can go to see what user was used to authorize to Github or to redo the authorization for an existing project?

    Sure, you can go to and under the Source control authorizations heading see which GitHub account is linked.
