How do I tell 'git tag -s ..' (or -u) where my private key is (Windows 7)?

I successfully put my private key at a place where git finds it when it connects to github. (like this https://serverfault.com/questions/194567/how-to-i-tell-git-for-windows-where-to-find-my-private-rsa-key/198691#198691 ) But when I try to sign a tag, this default magic seems not to apply.

Why does GIT not use the core.editor and commit.template configuration values when running from the bash command prompt?

When I run commit from a standard command prompt it is opening the configured editor defined by the core.editor configuration value and uses the template defined by commit.template. However when I run commit from the bash command prompt it is ignoring these settings and opening the VI editor without the template. Why is this? I […]
