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
extracts nicely

This distribution doesn't create a directory and extracts its content into this directory. Instead, it creates more than one directories (some of which are probably system-specific hidden files/directories), or it spews its content into the current directory, making it really hard/annoying to remove the unpacked package.

Pack the distribution with a proper command such as "make dist" and "./Build dist", or use a distribution builder such as Dist::Zilla, Dist::Milla, Minilla.

metayml is parsable

The META.yml file of this distribution could not be parsed by the version of CPAN::Meta::YAML.pm CPANTS is using.

If you don't have one, add a META.yml file. Else, upgrade your YAML generator so it produces valid YAML.

metayml conforms to known spec

META.yml does not conform to any recognised META.yml Spec.

Take a look at the META.yml Spec at http://module-build.sourceforge.net/META-spec-v1.4.html (for version 1.4) or http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?CPAN::Meta::Spec (for version 2), and change your META.yml accordingly.

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.

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
metayml declares perl version

This distribution does not declare the minimum perl version in META.yml.

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.

metayml 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
metayml has provides

This distribution does not have a list of provided modules defined in META.yml.

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.

metayml has repository resource

This distribution does not have a link to a repository in META.yml.

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

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.

fits fedora license

Fits the licensing requirements of Fedora (Acceptable licenses: (perl, apache, artistic_2, gpl, lgpl, mit, mozilla)).

Replace the license or convince Fedora to accept this license as well.

easily repackageable by fedora

It is easy to repackage this module by Fedora.

Fix each one of the metrics this depends on.
