Under maintenance.

Most probably CPANTS databases are being regenerated from scratch due to major changes in Kwalitee metrics or updates of relevant modules/perl. Usually this maintenance takes about a day or two, and some of the information may be old or missing tentatively. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Kwalitee Issues


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


Add a section called "LICENSE" to the documentation, or add a file named LICENSE to the distribution.


Add =head1 LICENSE and the text of the license to the main module in your code.


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


Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install it.


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

Error: Geo-Walkabout-0.01/lib/Geo/Walkabout/Chain.pm -- Around line 236: You forgot a '=back' before '=head2'Around line 277: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' Geo-Walkabout-0.01/lib/Geo/Walkabout/Utils.pm -- Around line 399: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • AnyLoader
  • Carp::Assert
  • Class::DBI


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.

Error: Geo::Walkabout, Geo::Walkabout::Class::DBI


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

Error: 0.01,0.02


Add =head1 LICENSE and/or the proper text of the well-known license to the main module in your code.


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.


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.


  • Geo::Walkabout
  • Geo::Walkabout::Chain
  • Geo::Walkabout::Chain::PostgreSQL
  • Geo::Walkabout::Class::DBI
  • Geo::Walkabout::Line
  • Geo::Walkabout::Line::PostgreSQL
  • Geo::Walkabout::Utils


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: Geo::Walkabout, Geo::Walkabout::Chain, Geo::Walkabout::Class::DBI, Geo::Walkabout::Line, Geo::Walkabout::Utils


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