There was some recent discussion on the main git list recently on a similar 
topic. http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/275881 "Flags and 
config to sign pushes by default". Have a search for other discussions. 

If I remember correctly, many discussions end up with a 'signing should be a 
deliberate act' line of reasoning such that (g)it shouldn't allow a 
config-to-on setting. 

To my mind, often the discussions can become confused surrounding which remote 
is 'blessed' (signing, verification, review & validation essential) and which 
is simply a backup/archive/hub/test/dev facility (signing not essential).

  Subject: Re: [git-users] Signing tags by default?


  Hello,


  I don’t know of such an option, but at my previous company we simply refused 
to accept non-signed tags in the blessed repo.


  Best,

    Should it be (or maybe, is it) possible to configure git to sign tags by 
default?


    While you can pass -s/-u to `git tag` it doesn't appear that there's a `git 
config` setting to make this the default.  It would at least be
    useful on a per-repo basis.  Some development communities might want to 
mandate signed tags.



    Cheers,
    -Barry
