Kwalitee Fails

Core metrics

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.

meta yml is parsable

The META.yml file of this distribution could not be parsed by the version of CPAN::Meta::YAML.pm CPANTS is using.

If you don't have one, add a META.yml file. Else, upgrade your YAML generator so it produces valid YAML.

meta json conforms to known spec

META.json does not conform to any recognised META Spec.

Take a look at the META.json Spec at http://module-build.sourceforge.net/META-spec-v1.4.html (for version 1.4) or http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?CPAN::Meta::Spec (for version 2), and change your META.json accordingly.

has meta yml

The file "META.yml" is missing from this distribution. META.yml is needed by people maintaining module collections (like CPAN), for people writing installation tools, or just people who want to know some stuff about a distribution before downloading it.

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

buildtool not executable

The build tool (Build.PL/Makefile.PL) is executable. This is bad because you should specify which perl you want to use while installing.

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

no broken module install

This distribution uses an obsolete version of Module::Install. Versions of Module::Install prior to 0.61 might not work on some systems at all. Additionally if your Makefile.PL uses the 'auto_install()' feature, you need at least version 0.64. Also, 1.04 is known to be broken.

Upgrade the bundled version of Module::Install to the most current release. Alternatively, you can switch to another build system / installer that does not suffer from this problem. (ExtUtils::MakeMaker, Module::Build both of which have their own set of problems.)

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.

use strict

This distribution does not 'use strict;' (or its equivalents) in all of its modules. Note that this is not about the actual strictness of the modules. It's bad if nobody can tell whether the modules are strictly written or not, without reading the source code of your favorite clever module that actually enforces strictness. In other words, it's bad if someone feels the need to add 'use strict' to your modules.

Add 'use strict' (or its equivalents) to all modules, or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules are strictly written.

Extra metrics

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.

metricremedy
use warnings

This distribution does not 'use warnings;' (or its equivalents) in all of its modules. Note that this is not about that your modules actually warn when something bad happens. It's bad if nobody can tell if a module warns or not, without reading the source code of your favorite module that actually enforces warnings. In other words, it's bad if someone feels the need to add 'use warnings' to your modules.

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.

Experimental metrics

These fails are not serious and don't affect your Kwalitee scores at all.

metricremedy
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.
