Keep in mind, .docksal/docksal.env is a shared configuration file and should be committed to git. .docksal/docksal-local.env, on the other hand, can be used for local overrides and should be excluded from git. As such, it is best to use .docksal/docksal-local.env for any personal keys and tokens configured at the project level.
