Kwalitee Issues


Add a Changelog (best named 'Changes') to the distribution. It should list at least major changes implemented in newer versions.


Add a META.yml to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.


Split the distribution, or fix the version numbers to make them consistent (use the highest version number to avoid version downgrade).

Error: 1.00,19000100


Add a META.json to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.


Define the license if you are using in Build.PL. If you are using MakeMaker (Makefile.PL) you should upgrade to ExtUtils::MakeMaker version 6.31.


Ask the owner of the distribution (the one who released it first, or the one who is designated in x_authority) to give you a (co-)maintainer's permission.


  • Acme::Current


Add 'use warnings' (or its equivalents) to all modules (this will require perl > 5.6), or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules warn when something bad happens.

Error: Acme::Current, Acme::Current::Forever


This is not a critical issue. Currently mainly informative for the CPANTS authors. It might be removed later.

Acme::Current::Forever Acme::Current workalike that doesn't require you to update every bloody day 1.00 metacpan
