Branches don't contain authorship, as far as I know. Annotated tags
do, but lightweight tags do not.

For annotated tags you should be able to build an alias which lists
all the tag objects and includes the author, i.e.

git for-each-ref --format='%(refname)%09%(tagger)' refs/tags

This will list the refname along with its tagger.

I'm sure patches to add a "--tagger" option to git tag in list mode
would also be welcome.
