git-mktag - Creates a tag object

2. SYNOPSIS



git mktag < signature_file

3. DESCRIPTION



Reads a tag contents on standard input and creates a tag object that can also be used to sign other objects.

The output is the new tag(cqs <object> identifier.

4. TAG FORMAT



A tag signature file has a very simple fixed format: four lines of


.

 
Sélectionnez
object <sha1>
type <typename>
tag <tagname>
tagger <tagger>

.

followed by some optional free-form message (some tags created by older git may not have tagger line). The message, when exists, is separated by a blank line from the header. The message part may contain a signature that git itself doesn(cqt care about, but that can be verified with gpg.
