Yeah, looking at the logs for
there appears to be some configuration weirdness that makes temp files
unwriteable so all the tests that use those fail, plus some mysterious
issue with distutils.msvc9compiler, plus what's probably a genuine
error in mtrand.pyx where it is expecting 'long' to be 64 bits (which
it is on every 64-bit platform we support *except* for win64), plus
what's probably a genuine problem with test_diophantine_fuzz (py3 only
-- maybe some PyInt/PyLong transition issue?).

I have the option of clicking "add a project" and then selecting
github / numpy / numpy from the list, but AFAICT this seems to create
a second independent copy of the project in appveyor's system, which
I'm pretty sure is not what we want?

The interface is extraordinarily confusing. They really need to hire
an editor for their docs / messages :-(

(It's also astonishingly slow -- like 30 minutes per build, and builds
run in serial...)
