No diagnostics for (what appear to be) .yml failures

I'm trying (and failing!) to get my live project to mirror my test project - right now when I push to the AppVeyor branch I'm working on I get a failure in 0ms.

A zero elapsed failure suggests that the YML is wrong - but I have no diagnostics to tell me that and as I'm on a branch other than the default I can't even click the "run" button to get it to tell me what's wrong (I've now fiddled with the settings to change the default branch so that I've now see the yml error).

If the .yml is in error then we need the "Error parsing appveyor.yml: " persisted somewhere...

(Random thought, be nice to be able to use the settings pages to generate a valid .yml file and I've previously mentioned that a validator other than a "push" would be useful)

    Are you on GitHub or BitBucket?

    I also managed to get a "version already exists" error attempting to re-run one of the failed builds, changing the next build number manually fixed that - but its the same "I can't see why it failed" problem in terms of history/log

    I see. The issue looks like the one reported by another customer. This is
    something with AppVeyor not being able to download appveyor.yml from Git
    branch on BitBucket. I tried to reproduce it on our test BitBucket repo but
    had no luck.
    It would be very helpful if you could tell me exactly how to reproduce the
    error. Assume I only have some "RepoA" with "master" branch and couple of
    files and appveyor.yml in it.

    I should be able to do you POC fairly easily - will try and find a suitable moment

    Apologies, life got the better of me and I'm not sure I could reproduce this now
