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 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.

no generated files

This distribution has files/directories that should be generated at build time, not distributed by the author.

Remove the offending files/directories!

has human readable license

This distribution does not have a license defined in the documentation or in a file called LICENSE

Add a section called "LICENSE" to the documentation, or add a file named LICENSE to the distribution.

has license in source file

Does not have license information in any of its source files

Add =head1 LICENSE and the text of the license to the main module in your code.

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.

no pod errors

The documentation for this distribution contains syntactic errors in its POD. Note that this metric tests all .pl, .pm and .pod files, even if they are in t/. See 'pod_message' in the dist error view for more info.

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

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
has tests in t dir

This distribution contains either a file called 'test.pl' (the old test file) or is missing a directory called 't'. This indicates that it uses the old test mechanism or it has no test-suite.

Add tests or move tests.pl to the t/ directory!

no stdin for prompting

This distribution is using direct call from STDIN instead of prompt(). Make sure STDIN is not used in Makefile.PL or Build.PL. See http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl5/index.cgi?cpan_packaging

Use the prompt() method from ExtUtils::MakeMaker/Module::Build.

proper libs

There is more than one .pm file in the base dir, or the .pm files are not in lib/ directory.

Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/Module.pm' for a module named 'Your::Module'.

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.

has known license in source file

Does not have license information in any of its source files, or the information is not recognized by Software::License

Add =head1 LICENSE and/or the proper text of the well-known license to the main module in your code.

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.
