I created a PR for DotNetZip to use AppVeyor as their CI, in my local fork everything runs fine, but on their build it always hangs on "mkdir -p build/pkg", and times out after 40 minutes.
any ideas?

    Hi Joel,

    While trying the command locally I'm getting this:

    c:\>mkdir -p build/pkg
    The syntax of the command is incorrect.

    Usually, build hangs if input is requested, like asking for confirmation, etc.

    I see. OK, well your joelweiss account is running on a new environment while haf on Azure - that could be a difference.

    I've moved haf to a new environment too, so you can resubmit PR and see if it goes through.

    Nice! But the question remains why it didn't work in the first place, on Azure? :)

    Well... that's for your team to figure out ;-)
    Thanks again.
