TFS 2013 GIT support and using github to trigger other checkouts

Hello, i would like to use appveyor for my company, but i've two questions:

We have TFS 2013.4 and, as already answered in this question ( it is currently not supported.

Since TFS 2013 also supports git repositories i was wondering if appveyor standalone git support is enough to interact with a TFS 2013 Git repository (instead of classic TFS source control one).

Another question stems from the fact that we have also a github organization account, since github is supported i was wondering if it's allowed to have a github commit which simply triggers a checkout from TFS and a subsequent build.
A workflow like the following: when one developer commits to TFS it automatically make a fake commit on a private github repository, this second commit triggers our build that ignore the github commit but does a checkout from using tf.exe and start buiding it.

Is this scenario allowed, although probably not supported, by appveyor?

Thank you,

    Hi Angelo,

    Sorry for the delay with reply.

    Currently, the way AppVeyor uses to grab sources from VSO is downloading repo path as a zip archive, without using tf.exe.

    You can add new project as generic "Git" repo however appveyor.yml won't be supported.
