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.
Tag Format
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.
