When nuget fail to publish a package, build is failed and fire an error message:

Error publishing package. NuGet server returned 403: The specified API key is invalid, has expired, or does not have permission to access the specified package.

I want to avoid build fail due to the failure of publishing package, what can i add to appveyor.yml
It's enough to get a warning/info message and latter I can re-publish when key is updated.

    Well, you can configure a new "NuGet" deployment environment and then publish asynchronously to that environment...though you wan't get an warning/error in a build log.

    Another way would be publishing with nuget push ... command line instead built-in deployment provider.
