go: warning: github.com/armon/go-metrics@v0.3.11: retracted by module author: Introduced undocumented breaking change to metrics sink interface
go: to switch to the latest unretracted version, run:
        go get github.com/armon/go-metrics@latest

Why?

> curl -n "https://gitlab.tst/repos-group/group/clients/rest-api?go-get=1"
<html><head><meta name="go-import" content="gitlab.tst/repos-group/group/clients/rest-api git https://gitlab.tst/repos-group/group/clients/rest-api.git"><meta name="go-source" content="gitlab.tst/repos-group/group/clients/rest-api https://gitlab.tst/repos-group/group/clients/rest-api https://gitlab.tst/repos-group/group/clients/rest-api/-/tree/develop{/dir} https://gitlab.tst/repos-group/group/clients/rest-api/-/blob/develop{/dir}/{file}#L{line}"></head><body>go get https://gitlab.tst/repos-group/group/clients/rest-api</body></html>%

curl use empty login if login not specified in .netrc and it's work normally because gitlab uses only password from authorization token.

Proff:

# curl -n -v "https://git.tst/repos-group/group/clients/rest-api?go-get=1"
...

Note that the net/http package itself doesn't have any built-in support for .netrc files; cmd/go uses its own parser based on the documentation found at https://www.gnu.org/software/inetutils/manual/html_node/The-_002enetrc-file.html.

Per that documentation (emphasis mine):

‘login name’
Identify a user on the remote machine. If this token is present, the auto-login process will initiate a login using the specified name.

That seems to imply that if the login token is not present, the auto-login process should not initiate a login.

See also:

which seems to suggest that GitHub takes the opposite approach, encoding the token as the login rather than the password.

curl successfuly parse netrc file without login field.
Where to need? For example gitlab uses only password from authorization header while `go get`

Fixes golang#65260
