Kwalitee Issues


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


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

Error: DBI-Shell-11.95/lib/DBI/ -- Around line 1939: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding in 'König.'. Assuming ISO8859-1


Split the distribution, or fix the version numbers to make them consistent (use the highest version number to avoid version downgrade).

Error: 11.91,11.92,11.95


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.


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.


Ask the owner of the distribution (the one who released it first, or the one who is designated in x_authority) to give you a (co-)maintainer's permission.


  • DBI::Format::Raw


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: DBI::Format, DBI::Format::CSV, DBI::Format::SQLMinus, DBI::Shell, DBI::Shell::Completion, DBI::Shell::FindSqlFile, DBI::Shell::SQLMinus, DBI::Shell::Spool, DBI::Shell::Timing


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).
