Build and Deploy occurred when creating a release

Seems AppVeyor is getting all kinds of events and building that I'd rather it not build on. We just created a release from our master branch in Github and AppVeyor built and deployed. We don't want releases built (or tags for that matter). Can you confirm that tags and releases are the same thing in Github, as far as AppVeyor is concerned? If not, is there a way to avoid building releases?

I see that you can get AppVeyor to do the release for us and I will investigate that separately.

    Hi Steven,

    Sure, just add this line to your appveyor.yml to stop AppVeyor triggering builds on tags/release:

    skip_tags: true
