Kwalitee Issues


Add a Changelog (best named 'Changes') to the distribution. It should list at least major changes implemented in newer versions.


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


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

Error: ExtUtils-SVDmaker-0.10/lib/Docs/Site_SVD/ -- Around line 376: L<> starts or ends with whitespace ExtUtils-SVDmaker-0.10/lib/ExtUtils/ -- Around line 2581: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding in '©'. 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: 0.10,1.12


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


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.


List all modules used in the test suite in META.yml build_requires


  • File::Copy
  • File::Glob
  • File::Spec
  • FindBin
  • Test::Tech
  • vars
  • warnings
  • warnings::register


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