Hello joey,

First let me thank you and other contributors for this great tool, it helps me a lot in my day to day work :))

I need to checkout something from a private area of a gitlab instance. In order to authenticate, I setup a personnal access token [1].

It seems to me that PrivData is the right type to use in order to store it and avoid to have the token in clear text in the config.hs file.

I will use it in order to generate the url of the Git type.

(Git "https://:@gitlab.xxxx.yy/user name/blabla.git" Nothing "")

This is the first time I will try to use the privdata and I do not know how to proceed.

I saw that only a certain amount of constructors are available for these privdata. Should I add a new one for my gitlab personnal access token ?.

What is the context which can be attach to the privdata in order to have something as flexible as possible ? It seems to me that the contex should be the gitlab url and the user name, but maybe you could think about a better solution.

Could you explain with a code snipset how to proceed, becasue it is not really clear to me. Or point to an available example.

thanks for your help
