.SH "SYNOPSIS"
.sp

\fIgit mktag\fR

.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.sp
Reads a tag contents on standard input and creates a tag object that can also be used to sign other objects\&.
.sp
The output is the new tag\(cqs <object> identifier\&.
.SH "TAG FORMAT"
.sp
A tag signature file, to be fed to this command\(cqs standard input, has a very simple fixed format: four lines of
.sp
.if n \{\
.RS 4
.\}
.nf
object <sha1>
type <typename>
tag <tagname>
tagger <tagger>
.fi
.if n \{\
.RE
.\}
.sp
followed by some \fIoptional\fR free\-form message (some tags created by older Git may not have \fBtagger\fR 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\&.
