NAME
       git-mktag - Creates a tag object

SYNOPSIS
       git mktag < signature_file

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's <object> identifier.

TAG FORMAT
       A tag signature file 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.
