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.
|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!
|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.
|meta yml declares perl version||
This distribution does not declare the minimum perl version in META.yml.
|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.
|no abstract stub in pod||
A well-known abstract stub (typically generated by an authoring tool) is found in this distribution.
Modify the stub. You might need to modify other stubs (for name, synopsis, license, etc) as well.
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.
|meta yml has repository resource||
This distribution does not have a link to a repository in META.yml.
Add a 'repository' resource to the META.yml via 'meta_add' accessor (for Module::Build) or META_ADD parameter (for ExtUtils::MakeMaker).
|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.
