Thanks :)

  1. For your first question, I had the mistake of adding my github's account private key to the repository source.
    now I remove them all.

  2. I'm glad about that :)
    I had no idea what vanilla meant 😅(of course, now I know).

you are 14? really?
btw, be careful on how you remove those private keys. one commit removing the files is not enough

Just change the keys if you've exposed a private key. As a general rule, never commit a private key on a public repository and really it's best to not ever and use something more secure like Hashicorp Vault or AWS's tools for secrets.
