Certain circle.yml mistakes cause build to not enter queue

Steps to reproduce:

Example file here: https://github.com/cpoll/TestMisc/blob/develop/circle.yml#L29

The mistake in the file is that line 29, branches: is not nested underneath a filters: section.


CircleCI starts a build, which fails with some error message related to the issue in the circle.yml file.


CircleCI build does not enter queue.

Observe that there is no build in the CircleCI queue at https://circleci.com/gh/cpoll/TestMisc that corresponds to the fourth commit in github.com/cpoll/TestMisc (SHA: c60e111)
