You can also sign your tags with a PGP signature using GnuPG, [...]

@DerDu

Example

Line(911): If you run git show on that tag, you can see your GPG signature attached to it:

Line(919): -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----

Line(920): Version: GnuPG v1.4.8 (Darwin)

A signature can be PGP or GPG. Both are generic names for a similar product.

GPG is also GnuPG
