NAME
----
git-tag - Create a tag object signed with GPG
SYNOPSIS
--------
'git-tag' [-a | -s | -u <key-id>] [-f | -d] [-m <msg>] <name> [<head>]
DESCRIPTION
-----------
Adds a 'tag' reference in .git/refs/tags/
Unless `-f` is given, the tag must not yet exist in
`.git/refs/tags/` directory.
If one of `-a`, `-s`, or `-u <key-id>` is passed, the command
creates a 'tag' object, and requires the tag message. Unless
`-m <msg>` is given, an editor is started for the user to type
in the tag message.
Otherwise just the SHA1 object name of the commit object is
written (i.e. a lightweight tag).
A GnuPG signed tag object will be created when `-s` or `-u
<key-id>` is used. When `-u <key-id>` is not used, the
committer identity for the current user is used to find the
GnuPG key for signing.
`-d <tag>` deletes the tag.
