Appveyor not cloning ?

I want to ask why my build not seem to clone the repository?
I'm using VSTS at the moment.

It only says
Fetching repository contents...OK

When I see other people build, it says
git clone -q xxxxxx
git checkout -qf xxxxxx

Is this because I'm using VSTS ?

Because of this I'm unable to run GitVersion when using Cake

    Hi Daniel,

    I believe this answer can help you with a workaround for now.

    When we implemented VSTS support, fetching repository as a zip archive was considered most reliable approach. Though I cannot provide you with specific ETA, but will plan to review this and implement better support in near feature.
