Kwalitee Issues


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


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


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


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.

Error: Cannot find MANIFEST in dist.


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

Error: Bio-SAGE-DataProcessing-1.20/lib/Bio/SAGE/ -- Around line 54: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding in 'population’s'. Assuming ISO8859-1


Fix the version(s).


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.


Fix the version numbers so that version::is_lax($version) returns true.


  • lib/Bio/SAGE/DataProcessing/ HASH(0x723f2e8)
  • lib/Bio/SAGE/DataProcessing/ HASH(0x720c860)
  • lib/Bio/SAGE/DataProcessing/ HASH(0x72787c8)


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: Bio::SAGE::DataProcessing, Bio::SAGE::DataProcessing::AveragePhredFilter, Bio::SAGE::DataProcessing::Filter, Bio::SAGE::DataProcessing::MinimumPhredFilter


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