I think (off the top of my head, i.e., without consulting a reference)
that `git log` (which your aliases end up at) will only display
signatures on commits, but will not show the tag objects themselves.
`git show` does display the tag object, and for openssl only the tag
object is what is signed; the commits themselves are not signed.
