Git branch --delete and Git Squash -Effect on Appveyor

What is the effect on the Appveyor builds when this is done?

  1. I have many small commits in a branch "deploy-windows" and would like to squash them into one commit. It should reduce the number of appveyor builds, but will it?

  2. Or I could just create a new branch from "deploy-windows" and then delete "deploy-windows". Would that be ok?

    Are you currently using skip directive in the commit messages?

    That is helpful to know, I needed appveyor to determine how appveyor worked and didnt with the changes.

    I think what I will do is git checkout -b [new branch] from the subject branch. Then squash it locally and push to remote.

    Then turn on appveyor for that new branch and turn off for the old branch.
    Then I can delete the old remote and local branch.
