The site is under maintenance.

Most probably the CPANTS databases are being regenerated from scratch behind the scenes due to the major change in Kwalitee metrics or the update 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 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
buildtool not executable

The build tool (Build.PL/Makefile.PL) is executable. This is bad because you should specify which perl you want to use while installing.

Change the permissions of Build.PL/Makefile.PL to not-executable.

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.

no pod errors

The documentation for this distribution contains syntactic errors in its POD. Note that this metric tests all .pl, .pm and .pod files, even if they are in t/. See 'pod_message' in the dist error view for more info.

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

Extra metrics

Excellent. Your distribution passes all the extra metrics.

Experimental metrics

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.

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.

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.

easily repackageable by debian

It is easy to repackage this module by Debian.

Fix each one of the metrics this depends on.

easily repackageable by fedora

It is easy to repackage this module by Fedora.
