Secure env vars in build log

I have a suggestion. If someone has an environment variable that is secure, it would be good if it showed up in the build log as ******* instead of the actual characters. That way if someone went to the trouble to encrypt and secure a value, it is never accidentally exposed through the build log.

    Hi Tommy,

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    The could be an issue with implementation as secure variables behave absolutely similar to regular variables. The purpose of "secure variable" is to protect sensitive data in pull request builds of OSS projects that can be initiated by an untrusted party.

    And current implementation is easy - variables marked as secure are just not set during PR builds.
