       git-mktag - Creates a tag object


       git mktag


       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’s <object> identifier.


       A tag signature file, to be fed to this command’s standard input, has a very simple fixed
       format: four lines of

           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’t care about, but that can be
       verified with gpg.
