Kwalitee Issues

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.

has_meta_yml

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

has_readme

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

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 (5) does not match dist (7):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: MANIFEST, Makefile, t/Describe.t
  • Missing in Dist: ./t/Describe.t

no_generated_files

Remove the offending files/directories!

Error: Makefile

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.

has_tests_in_t_dir

Add tests or move tests.pl to the t/ directory!

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.

no_stdin_for_prompting

Use the prompt() method from ExtUtils::MakeMaker/Module::Build.

has_separate_license_file

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