Can I set up the continous integration with a github repository that is not mine and that I am not even a contributor. That project is open source, I asked the owner and he told me that he can give me a token for setting up the CI in his repository but is it possible to add appveyor to this project, and how?

    Yes, you can. You can add it as generic Git repo of course, but adding it as GitHub is preferable, so appveyor.yml is supported and you can later send webhook URL to repo owner.

    To do that fork the repo, then add a new project for your repo, then open its settings and change repo owner/name to point to the original repo.
