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.

no pax headers

This distribution is archived with PAX extended headers, which may be useful under some environments, but may also make extraction fail under other environments (Archive::Tar ignores PAX information as well).

If you use Mac OS X >= 10.6, use gnu tar (/usr/bin/gnutar) to avoid PAX headers. It's also important to rename (shorten) long file names (>= 100 characters) in the distribution.

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.

no mymeta files

This distribution contains MYMETA.* files which should be used only locally. This metric should be integrated into 'no_generated_files' eventually, but as MYMETA.* files are recent inventions, you might need to take special care if MANIFEST.SKIP exists in your distribution. Hence this metric.

Update MANIFEST.SKIP to exclude MYMETA files. If you are lazy, add "#!install_default" in your MANIFEST.SKIP and update your ExtUtils::Manifest if necessary, then some of the most common files will be excluded.

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.

meta yml 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.

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.

Experimental metrics

These fails are not serious and don't affect your Kwalitee scores at all.

metricremedy
meta yml 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.

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.
