  • What kind of changes? Package installation, removal and configuration? Use apt-mark showmanual to save list of manually installed packages, dpkg --get-selections | grep 'deinstall$' to save list of removed packages, debconf --get-selections to save debconf package settings, backup files that you edited in /etc. This should be enough for restoration, wouldn’t take a long time for backup and avoid risk of filesystem inconsistency.

    Technically, you always use a username, however in case of Gitlab that SSH username is always git. When an SSH client connects to server, it offers an authentication method. Gitlab accepts that method only if it is a publickey and the fingerprint of the offered key maps to the known Gitlab user.
