You gave GitLab an ssh public key; git uses your ssh private key.  This
allows you to be authenticated to GitLab.  You're a member of the NTPsec
project with the role "Developer", so you can push to any unprotected branch.
The repository is not world-writable.

It does puzzle me that one part of the GitLab interface thinks you've left
the project, but you're still listrd as a member at
