Following the guide of the Apache Cocoon project
(http://cocoon.apache.org/1199_1_1.html) you need to have something like

mvn release:prepare
mvn  release:perform
-Darguments="-Dgpg.passphrase='[secret_passphrase_here]' -Prelease"
-Prelease


At least for me using the -Darguments.... I get propmted to enter my
password.
