Nix: Authenticated Fetches from GitLab - Reading about Related Work

I discussed wanting to fetch private artifacts from GitLab at $work with @Ericson2314 and he gave me some pointers about current ideas!

I wanted to take notes and write down how these might help with my plight (or not) without polluting the existing issues too much (I added some questions).

Tell me what you think and if I should think about other solutions.

So far, my favorite short-term solution would be something as I described in Peter Kolloch - Blog - Nix in the Enterprise: AWS S3 Store Authentication (skip ahead to “User-friendly Pragmatic Solution”) but long-term we can definitely do even better :slight_smile:
