Steve has no plan to support VSTS on Python 2.7:
"Correct, and I wasn't planning on it. The default VSTS machines don’t have the right compiler, and I’m not about to start managing VMs for 2.7 at this stage."
So I would suggest to keep AppVeyor for Python 2.7, at least for the short term, and maybe make it mandatory again since it works again we doubled our capacity (1 job => 2 jobs in parallel)!
The workflow velocity is less impact for Python 2.7 which gets less changes than 3.x & master branches.

We had to turn off AppVeyor as a requirement today due to it not running any builds for the last 20 hours. Ned Deily suggested that since VSTS on at least Windows has stabilized that maybe we should switch off AppVeyor off entirely and make the Windows VSTS builder required.
Since https://python.visualstudio.com/cpython/_build/index?context=mine&path=%... shows the builder has been stable I would like to make this required for master today/tomorrow and then flip it on for the other 3.x branches on Friday if we don't see any instability.
Any objections/opinions about doing this?
