It was brought to my attention that at least one linux distribution
developer likes to have git tags signed as to have authoritative tags
for releases. IIRC this was mostly as a nice-to-have sort of thing, so
this isn't terribly important I'd say.
Nevertheless, if you are in the business of releasing you might wish
to consider signing your tags. I for one can't see a downside TBH.


(when using releasme, tags are already signed by default. so, this
doesn't affect Plasma)
