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.
The distribution filename (eg. Foo-Bar-1.42.tar.gz) does not include a version number (or something that looks like a reasonable version number to CPAN::DistnameInfo)
Add a version number to the packed distribution. Or use a buildtool ('make dist' or 'Build dist')
|has proper version||
The version number isn't a number. It probably contains letter besides a leading 'v', which it shouldn't
Remove all letters from the version number. If you want to mark a release as a developer release, use the scheme 'Module-1.00_01'
|no generated files||
This distribution has files/directories that should be generated at build time, not distributed by the author.
Remove the offending files/directories!
This distribution has at least one file with non-portable characters in its filename, which may cause problems under some environments.
Rename those files with alphanumerical characters, or maybe remove them because in many cases they are automatically generated for local installation.
|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.
|manifest matches dist||
MANIFEST does not match the contents of this distribution.
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.
|package version matches dist version||
None of the package versions in this distribution matches the distribution version.
Fix the version(s).
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.
|has tests in t dir||
This distribution contains either a file called 'test.pl' (the old test file) or is missing a directory called 't'. This indicates that it uses the old test mechanism or it has no test-suite.
Add tests or move tests.pl to the t/ directory!
There is more than one .pm file in the base dir, or the .pm files are not in lib/ directory.
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.
This distribution is not required by another distribution by another author.
Convince / force / bribe another CPAN author to use this distribution.
These fails are not serious and don't affect your Kwalitee scores at all.
|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.
