Yeah, we redact the auth information so people don't accidentally share
it publicly. If you use the older GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1, it will include
the credential (I think it may be base64 encoded, though, so you'll have
to decipher it).

I don't think Git will ever send your token in either of those ways. It
will always some as an Authorization header.

I don't know the details of what GitLab would want, but...

Yes, that would work to preload a token into any configured helpers.
