How does AppVeyor skip a build?

I am having trouble with AppVeyor and PRs that only make changes to files in skip_commits: (eg:
I set up the repository to require the CI to pass. But as AppVeyor will skip, the CI never passes.

I see two options:
1. I replicate how AppVeyor identifies if only skip_commits: files were changed
--> Could you let me know how AppVeyor does this? 2. I configure AppVeyor to skip the steps in the build, but still returns a "pass"

    What about skipping status checks on those superficial commits?
