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
no dot underscore files

This distribution has dot underscore files which may cause various problems.

If you use Mac OS X, set COPYFILE_DISABLE (for OS 10.5 and better) or COPY_EXTENDED_ATTRIBUTES_DISABLE (for OS 10.4) environmental variable to true to exclude dot underscore files from a distribution.

no broken auto install

This distribution uses an old version of Module::Install. Versions of Module::Install prior to 0.89 do not detect correcty that CPAN/CPANPLUS shell is used.

Upgrade the bundled version of Module::Install to at least 0.89, but preferably to the most current release. Alternatively, you can switch to another build system / installer that does not suffer from this problem. (ExtUtils::MakeMaker, Module::Build both of which have their own set of problems.)

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
metayml declares perl version

This distribution does not declare the minimum perl version in META.yml.

If you are using Build.PL define the {requires}{perl} = VERSION field. If you are using MakeMaker (Makefile.PL) you should upgrade ExtUtils::MakeMaker to 6.48 and use MIN_PERL_VERSION parameter. Perl::MinimumVersion can help you determine which version of Perl your module needs.

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
metayml has provides

This distribution does not have a list of provided modules defined in META.yml.

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.

metayml 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.
