Kwalitee Fails

Core metrics

These fails do affect your Kwalitee scores. This distribution may not be installed cleanly, or may have some issues in license or documentation. Please consider fixing them, or tell us if they are false.

metricremedy
has readme

The file "README" is missing from this distribution. The README provides some basic information to users prior to downloading and unpacking the distribution.

Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install it.

has manifest

The file "MANIFEST" is missing from this distribution. The MANIFEST lists all files included in the distribution.

Add a MANIFEST to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it (eg "make manifest" or "./Build manifest")

has meta yml

The file "META.yml" is missing from this distribution. META.yml is needed by people maintaining module collections (like CPAN), for people writing installation tools, or just people who want to know some stuff about a distribution before downloading it.

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

has changelog

The distribution hasn't got a Changelog (named something like m/^chang(es?|log)|history$/i. A Changelog helps people decide if they want to upgrade to a new version.

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

manifest matches dist

MANIFEST does not match the contents of this distribution.

Run a proper command ("make manifest" or "./Build manifest", maybe with a force option), or use a distribution builder to generate the MANIFEST. Or update MANIFEST manually.

has abstract in pod

No abstract (short description of a module) is found in pod from this distribution.

Provide a short description in the NAME section of the pod (after the module name followed by a hyphen) at least for the main module of this distribution.

prereq matches use

This distribution uses a module or a dist that's not listed as a prerequisite.

List all used modules in META.yml requires

Extra metrics

These fails affect your total Kwalitee score, but don't affect the one for the Game. Some of them should be fixed by all means. Others are just matters of taste.

metricremedy
meta yml has license

This distribution does not have a license defined in META.yml.

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.

is prereq

This distribution is not required by another distribution by another author.

Convince / force / bribe another CPAN author to use this distribution.

Experimental metrics

These fails are not serious and don't affect your Kwalitee scores at all.

metricremedy
has separate license file

This distribution does not have a LICENSE or LICENCE file in its root directory.

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