Git "Tag to push" should trim whitespace

      Using git plugin 1.1.17.

      If you accidentally leave in whitespace in the "Tag to push" field, git will create a tag with the whitespace replaced by an "". E.g. if you configure a tag like "build-${BUILD_NUMBER} " (note the whitespace at the end of the field), the created tag will then be "build-121" or the like.

      The tag will be created locally but pushing the tag will fail because it will try to push the tag without the "_", and this tag will not exist.

      This error kind of pointed me in the wrong direction and it took some time to figure this out, it would be really great if the field could be trimmed, hopefully it will save some people some time if they have this same problem. Alternatively, you could give an error when leaving whitespace in the "Tag to push" field.
