Kwalitee Issues


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.


  • MANIFEST (19) does not match dist (21):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: Controller/uploadeg, config/uploadeg


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

Error: CGI-UploadEngine/lib/CGI/ -- Around line 565: You can't have =items (as at line 569) unless the first thing after the =over is an =itemAround line 666: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'


Fix the version(s).


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • Catalyst
  • Catalyst::Controller
  • DBIx::MySperql
  • Moose
  • YAML::Any
  • namespace::autoclean


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.


Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/' for a module named 'Your::Module'. If you need to provide additional files, e.g. for testing, that should not be considered for Kwalitee, then you should look at the 'provides' map in META.yml to limit the files scanned; or use the 'no_index' map to exclude parts of the distribution.

Error: Controller/, Controller/


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