It is spelled:

git notes add -m <comment> SHA1

The resulting notes are stored in a separate revision-controlled branch
and can be pushed and pulled like regular refs. Note, though, that the
default refspecs do not yet include refs/notes, so you'd have to add
them manually. The workflows around notes are not very mature yet, so if
you start using them, feedback would be appreciated.
