Not sure what happens, a new window opens, oauth goes through fine, seemingly, but I get back the /login page with a red "Forbidden" banner. Could you please take a look? Thanks!

    Sure. Thanks for looking into it!

    Btw. I tried removing the Appveyor applications from GitHub, and then logging in again. Then I need to re-authorize Appveyor, which goes fine, it shows up among the GitHub Applications, but still get the same red "Forbidden" message. :(

    Works now, I guess you fixed it. Thanks much!

    Strange. It has been broken for 1-2 days at least.... anyway, good that it works. :)

    I am getting the same error at the moment (attached). Incidentally, Appveyor is not seeing my project's YAML configuration file because it forgot that my account is authorized.

    This is probably related to recent GitHub connectivity issues, but it is getting better now. Do you still have this issue?

    I think you are right, the issue went away reasonably fast. Thank you.
