Kwalitee Issues


Take a look at the META.yml Spec at (for version 1.4) or (for version 2), and change your META.yml accordingly.

Error: License 'GPL' is invalid (license) [Validation: 1.4];Missing mandatory field, 'abstract' (abstract) [Validation: 1.4];value is an undefined string (abstract) [Validation: 1.4]


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

Error: Games-Go-SGF2misc-0.9782/ -- Around line 467: =cut found outside a pod block. Skipping to next block.Around line 472: =cut found outside a pod block. Skipping to next block.


Split the distribution, or fix the version numbers to make them consistent (use the highest version number to avoid version downgrade).

Error: 0.96,0.9782


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


Ask the owner of the distribution (the one who released it first, or the one who is designated in x_authority) to give you a (co-)maintainer's permission.


  • Games::Go::SGF2misc::GD


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.

Error: Games::Go::SGF2misc, Games::Go::SGF2misc::GD


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


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.
