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.

metricremedy
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.

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!

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
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!

no stdin for prompting

This distribution is using direct call from STDIN instead of prompt(). Make sure STDIN is not used in Makefile.PL or Build.PL. See http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl5/index.cgi?cpan_packaging

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

meta yml has license

This distribution does not have a license defined in META.yml.

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.

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.

is prereq

This distribution is not required by another distribution by another author.

Convince / force / bribe another CPAN author to use this distribution.

Experimental metrics

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

metricremedy
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.
