You've built your code, and you have a spiffy Jenkins setup to pull from git and run your tests for you, and you want to keep track of the pushes you do to your production environment. By default, Jenkins produces a local tag on the job's workspace named something like this: jenkins-<job-name>-<sequence-number>. However that doesn't tell you much. And that is not pushed to the remote repo.
As a developer, I'd prefer to just look at the list of tags on a repo and know which ones refer to pushes to production, and also know some more information about them without having to check them out and without having to inspect their logs. As you must know, according to Uber-Geek Larry Wall, developers are lazy! And impatient! And full of hubris! And that is a very good thing!
