See https://bugs.python.org/issue32302.  Subsequent builds should
succeed; if you need to restart a build on a PR, you have two options.
The simpler, noisier option is to close and reopen the PR.  Otherwise,
log into AppVeyor using GitHub OAuth, which should give you the option
to log in as "python".  Then navigate to the build you want to restart
and click "Re-build PR".
