Kwalitee Issues


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.


  • MANIFEST (22) does not match dist (27):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: Beep.pod, music/, music/love_will_tear_us_apart, music/pictures_at_an_exhibition, music/today


Take a look at the META.yml Spec at (for version 1.4) or (for version 2), and change your META.yml accordingly.

Error: Expected a map structure from string or file. (build_requires) [Validation: 1.0]


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

Error: Audio-Beep-0.11/pods/jp/Beep.pod -- Around line 1: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding in '̾��'. Assuming UTF-8


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


If you are using Build.PL define the {requires}{perl} = VERSION field. If you are using MakeMaker (Makefile.PL) you should upgrade ExtUtils::MakeMaker to 6.48 and use MIN_PERL_VERSION parameter. Perl::MinimumVersion can help you determine which version of Perl your module needs.


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: Audio::Beep, Audio::Beep::BSD::beep, Audio::Beep::Linux::PP, Audio::Beep::Linux::beep, Audio::Beep::Win32::API


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


Add all modules contained in this distribution to the META.yml field 'provides'. Module::Build or Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides do this automatically for you.


Add a 'repository' resource to the META.yml via 'meta_add' accessor (for Module::Build) or META_ADD parameter (for ExtUtils::MakeMaker).
