Kwalitee Issues

has_changelog

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

meta_yml_conforms_to_known_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.

Error: Missing mandatory field, 'abstract' (abstract) [Validation: 1.4];value is an undefined string (abstract) [Validation: 1.4]

no_generated_files

Remove the offending files/directories!

Error: pm_to_blib

no_mymeta_files

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.

no_pod_errors

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

Error: Chart-2.4.10/Chart.pod -- Around line 694: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 706: '=item' outside of any '=over'

prereq_matches_use

List all used modules in META.yml requires

Error:

  • GD::Image

has_meta_json

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

meta_yml_declares_perl_version

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

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.

proper_libs

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'. 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: Chart/Bars.pm, Chart/Base.pm, Chart/BrushStyles.pm, Chart/Composite.pm, Chart/Constants.pm, Chart/Direction.pm, Chart/ErrorBars.pm, Chart/HorizontalBars.pm, Chart/Lines.pm, Chart/LinesPoints.pm, Chart/Mountain.pm, Chart/Pareto.pm, Chart/Pie.pm, Chart/Points.pm, Chart/Split.pm, Chart/StackedBars.pm

use_warnings

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: Chart::Bars, Chart::Base, Chart::BrushStyles, Chart::Composite, Chart::Constants, Chart::Direction, Chart::ErrorBars, Chart::HorizontalBars, Chart::Lines, Chart::LinesPoints, Chart::Mountain, Chart::Pareto, Chart::Pie, Chart::Points, Chart::Split, Chart::StackedBars

build_prereq_matches_use

List all modules used in the test suite in META.yml build_requires

Error:

  • File::Spec
  • POSIX
  • strict

has_separate_license_file

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

meta_yml_has_provides

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.

meta_yml_has_repository_resource

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