Appveyor builds are reseting travis builds resulting in an infinity number of builds.

    Hi Patrick,

    Add the following to appveyor.yml to stop AppVeyor building on tags:

    # Do not build on tags (GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab, Gitea)
    skip_tags: true

    Hi Feodor,

    The problem that I'm saying is that Travis is creating AppVeyor builds and AppVeyor is creating Travis builds resulting in an infinity loop of both CI systems.

    We need the tag builds because we do tag releases (0.1 and etc) besides our master/continuous build release binary.

    So, how are you planning to solve this problem ten without stop doing that (creating Travis build from AppVeyor and vice versa)? :) What is you goal there? I can help.

    I'm not creating a travis build from appveyor on purpose.
    My configuration files are explicit, and this build configuration was working for more than 1 year without problems.
    Travis and appveyor only do deployments for two things, master branch (continuous builds) and normal tags (E.g: v2.0.0), Both travis and appveyor are not pushing code or changes in any branch or tag, only doing deployments, so it's not clear to me how an artifact upload is creating builds for appveyor and vice-versa.

    OK. You create a new GitHub release here: which essentially creates a new tag (if it doesn't exist) and creating a tag triggers a new build.

    Adding skip_tags: true will fix the issue.
