GPG signing with Git and Github Desktop

Hi Github users,

You can now signed your commits on Github using at least Git 2.18.0 and Github Desktop 1.6.1.

  1. Generate a GPG key and add it to Github: (if you don't want to type a passphrase on every commit, you need to press "Enter" when the console will prompt you to type a passphrase)

  2. Configure Git properly by editing the .gitconfig file using the command line git config --global --edit in a terminal, then replace YOUR_GITHUB_EMAIL, YOUR_SIGNING_KEY and GPG_BINARY_PATH with your data
