A git tag object can have its own text contents, but I do not
see how I can get to it from gitweb.
For example, I have "junio-gpg-pub" tag in my git.git
repository. This is a tag to a "blob" which is my public GPG
key. The "tag" object itself says:
tagger Junio C Hamano <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> 1123226972 -0700
This is the GPG key I use to sign GIT releases.
to tell people that they can use it to verify the tags signed by
me. I would appreciate that this description is visible
somewhere from gitweb. Clicking on the link just spews out the
blob contents, which is the ascii armored public key.
Of course I _could_ add textual description outside the ascii
armor in this particular case, but that approach would not work
in general --- my next funky tag _could_ point to a JPEG picture
with the tag description that says "my beautiful wife" ;-).
I realize that I am going tangent, but it would be very cool if
gitweb understood a tag payload that said something like this:
tagger Junio C Hamano <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> 1123226072 -0700
Here is a textual description of the blob being pointed at
by this tag. For this example, it should say "this is my
wife's picture" or something like that.
No, I am not going to create that tag.
