there's bee a period of about a year where I didn't push anything to XMLUnit.NET at github and sometime in the meantime something must have changed as the repository's appveyor.yml started to be ignored. is the last build that used appveyor.yml from the repo, the first one that failed to do so (notable by falling back to a 1.0.{build} version number). Today I started to debug the situation, changed a few things via the UI and finally thought I'd try to use the "alternative appveyor.yml location" route via and things started working again.

Given that github repos are supposed to work without this acrobatics I wonder whether maybe I have not granted a permission to appveyor that it may need or what else may have gone wrong. In the end I'd certainly prefer appveyor.yml to be located with the code over having it to sit in a gist where I'm the only person who can change it.

    Make sure GitHub is authorized on "New project" page. I see the last build is green - have you managed to fix the issue?

    It currently is green as it is using the gist mentioned in my initial message.

    It used to work and stopped working sometime between November 2020 and November 2021 (I didn't commit to the repo for a year, it didn't feel that long :-)). So either appveyor has lost the authorization or something else has changed. I don't see appveyor as app in the organization's or the repo's settings.

    The only place I've found Appveyor is as Authorized Oauth2 App in my personal account. And under the webhooks of the repo.

    OK, can you see a project's repo on "New project" page?

    It never occurred to me to look there :-)

    There I had two options for setting up the App or an OAuth2 App there and after installing the app to my repository I can see it listed on the new repository page. I'll change the appveyor.yml setting and try to trigger a build via a commit.

    OK, after adding the app via the "new project" page things seem to be working again, many thanks.

    Given that I've lost the app on an existing repository where I must have installed it in the past I just never thought about looking at the "new project" page. Might be a good idea to add this somewhere at the account settings as well.

    Thank you very much.
