Kwalitee Issues

buildtool_not_executable

Change the permissions of Build.PL/Makefile.PL to not-executable.

extracts_nicely

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.

has_abstract_in_pod

Provide a short description in the NAME section of the pod (after the module name followed by a hyphen) at least for the main module of this distribution.

has_changelog

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

has_human_readable_license

Add a section called "LICENSE" to the documentation, or add a file named LICENSE to the distribution.

has_license_in_source_file

Add =head1 LICENSE and the text of the license to the main module in your code.

manifest_matches_dist

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.

Error:

  • MANIFEST (10) does not match dist (10):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: MANIFEST.SKIP
  • Missing in Dist: META.json

no_pax_headers

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.

Error: pax_global_header,pax_global_header

prereq_matches_use

List all used modules in META.yml requires

Error:

  • feature

has_known_license_in_source_file

Add =head1 LICENSE and/or the proper text of the well-known license to the main module in your code.

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.

build_prereq_matches_use

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

Error:

  • parent

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_repository_resource

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