I want to transition my projects from using the web-based configuration to using appveyor.yml. Since I already have everything configured the way I want through the web UI, it would be nice if I could generate the YAML file from that configuration rather than having to start from scratch again.

    Yeah, that would be a nice feature, thanks! I'm adding it to issues list.

    When a build runs, does an appveyor.yml file get generated behind the scenes? If so, it seems like it would be possible for me to include it as a build artifact or even add a script command that echoes the contents of the file to the build log. Would that work as a temporary solution to this?

    It's not YAML, but an object model that is used to carry on configuration to a build worker. UI is serialized to this model and YAML is parsed into it.

    Yeah, there is "Export YML" tab on project settings.
