      Description

      It is cumbersome to be prompted for a passphrase during both release:prepare and release:perform:

          [INFO] --- maven-gpg-plugin:1.1:sign (sign-artifacts) @ nbm-maven-plugin ---
          GPG Passphrase: *
      

      I already use http://maven.apache.org/guides/mini/guide-encryption.html (with a master password on an Ubuntu encrypted filesystem) so why do I need to type this pass phrase each time too?

      Not clear to me whether MGPG-30 already permits this. In any event, the plugin documentation does not seem to mention this as a use case.
