Kwalitee Issues


Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install it.


Take a look at the META.yml Spec at (for version 1.4) or (for version 2), and change your META.yml accordingly.

Error: Expected a list structure (author) [Validation: 1.3]


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

Error: Class-ReturnValue-0.55/lib/Class/ -- Around line 97: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 264: =cut found outside a pod block. Skipping to next block.Around line 296: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'


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


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.


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


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.


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