In our Github project is a webhook setup to trigger an AppVeyor build, but the events sent to the webhook are always returning 403 since today.

    This is also affecting rust-lang/rust's CI.

    Issue has been happening for over an hour, and status page is still showing green.

    The build system itself is working. The Webhook maybe also. Only the IP range from github seems to have been blacklisted. So the status page is not directly lying.

    And as it's 4:13 AM in Vancouver I'm pretty sure that there are no office hours atm. ;)

    Is there an ETA for the fix already?

    Really poor show from AppVeyor here. No response to this discussion, support email or twitter message.

    I've never noticed their status page accurately reflect an actual issue - always displays everything working....
    It's pointless

    With respect, is there a reason that this was not handled 2 weeks ago when GitHub announced the upcoming change? I know stuff falls through cracks, but it seems like this shouldn't be one of them given it takes down the entire chain.

    I find a response time of under 4 hours (5:47 am to 9:30 am) to be pretty amazing.
    Thank you Feodor for the quick fix.
