Hi :)

I'm trying to use the NuGet restore option in a public repo, but it's not firing off.

Is this a case of the file being case sensitive? or some other silly thing I've done wrong?

the yml file:

    I guess it's AppVeyor.yml that should be lowercase appveyor.yml.

    Can you confirm? surely it would be easy to add a check for the file, with case insensitive and culture-invariant?

    But it's GitHub API, not AppVeyor. Try this link - I've changed to lowercase:

    It's a GitHub thingy? What does GitHub have to do with this, in this case? Doesn't AppVeyor have some custom code that says: "OK, do I use the UI config or the .yml file? lets look for the yml file .. and .. nope . can't find one."

    Disclaimer: I'm an idiot, so I bet I have no idea what is going on - but it doesn't hurt to ask :)

    Right, it checks for appveyor.yml first and if not found uses settings from UI.

    yeah. so where you do the check for appveyor.yml, can u see if that is a case sensitive check? if so, possible to change that to be case insensitive?

    I'm afraid not. You pass appveyor.yml path to this API and it gives 404 if a file with exact name not found.

    AH! i see why you passed this link, now :)

    Also, why are you pulling the file from GH instead of checking the cloned repo? Do you need to check for the file BEFORE you do the clone?

    Exactly, appveyor.yml is used to break build into multiple jobs (build matrix), check excluded/included branches, etc. and this should be done before build starts and repo cloned.
