I intend for them to be public Windows buildbots for libc++.

Otherwise having “project' bots” using a non-official mirror may sound like

I agree it isn't ideal, but when/if LLVM moves to github it will be trivial
to re-configure for the official repositories.
I considered a number of other ways to setup Appveyor but I concluded this
was the best/easiest way to do it.
The other options I considered for configuring Appveyor are:

(1) Use the official LLVM github mirrors.

This has the issue of requiring the implementation of custom Git webhooks,
which would require
modifying and maintaining changes to the existing LLVM Git infrastructure,
which in itself
would require getting access to the LLVM servers to make the changes.

(2) Setup my own ever more unofficial github mirror

This has all the same problems as using the existing github mirrors but it
me to configure and maintain my own mirror, which is non-trivial.

(3) Don't use Appveyor at all

This requires finding Windows hardware to host the bots, which is the main
I chose Appveyor to begin with. Even if hardware was available I would
prefer using
Appveyor since it provides more dominion over the environment than I think
donated hardware could.
