Triggering another project's build without a custom payload via GitHub

I've been attempting to find a way to trigger a build of a single project from a GitHub organization's webhook. The problem is that no matter which webhook I use in attempts to trigger a build, it always fails. results in {"message":"Repository type does not match."} results in {"message":"Push request and project repositories do not match."}

There's no way to use the AppVeyor API from GitHub without some sort of middleman to intercept and translate. I've used things such as before, but ideally this wouldn't be needed.

Basically what I'm looking for is a way to trigger a build of the target project's latest source using the already secret URL, without the target project/AppVeyor expecting the payload to match it or anything really as it wouldn't matter. From what I can tell, AppVeyor doesn't have a way of doing this right now.

    Can you please elaborate your scenario more? Why repository webhooks do not work for you?

    Maybe you just need this API?
