Builds on this project take ~5 minutes to start:
https://ci.appveyor.com/project/zeux/pugixml/

Is this expected or am I doing something wrong?

Because of this I had to stop using the environment matrix - as far as I understand based on the timing results, every new entry in the matrix starts up another VM; on some builds like this:
https://ci.appveyor.com/project/zeux/pugixml/build/9

You can see that total time is 20 minutes but the sum of the build times is ~9.

    Hi Arseny,

    That's right, Free plans run builds on Azure and it take 3-5 minutes to provision a new build worker VM there. And yes, each job is a separate build running on a fresh VM.

    Ok, sounds like getting rid of the matrix was a right call then.

    Thanks!
