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.


Add tests!


Remove the POD errors. You can check for POD errors automatically by including Test::Pod to your test suite.

Error: Apache-UploadSvr-1.024/lib/Apache/UploadSvr/ -- Around line 128: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding in 'König','. Assuming CP1252


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • Apache::Constants
  • CGI
  • Cwd
  • DBI
  • Data::Dumper
  • DirHandle
  • ExtUtils::Manifest
  • File::Basename
  • File::Find
  • File::Path
  • HTML::FormatText
  • HTML::Parse
  • HTTP::Date
  • IO::File
  • Image::Magick
  • Mail::Send
  • URI::URL
  • strict
  • vars


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

Error: 1.002,1.004,1.024


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


Add tests or move to the t/ directory!


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.


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: Apache::UploadSvr, Apache::UploadSvr::Dictionary, Apache::UploadSvr::Directory, Apache::UploadSvr::User


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