Kwalitee Issues

has_changelog

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

has_meta_yml

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

has_readme

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

no_broken_auto_install

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.)

no_broken_module_install

Upgrade the bundled version of Module::Install 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.)

no_pod_errors

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

Error: HoneyClient-Manager-0.99/lib/HoneyClient/Manager/FW.pm -- Around line 1151: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 3322: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'

prereq_matches_use

List all used modules in META.yml requires

Error:

  • HoneyClient::Agent::Driver
  • Net::IP

use_strict

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: HoneyClient::Manager::FW, Module::Install::Base

consistent_version

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

Error: 0.63,0.99,1.02

has_meta_json

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

meta_yml_has_license

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_unauthorized_packages

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.

Error:

  • Module::AutoInstall
  • Module::Install
  • Module::Install::AutoInstall
  • Module::Install::Base
  • Module::Install::Base::FakeAdmin
  • Module::Install::Can
  • Module::Install::Fetch
  • Module::Install::Include
  • Module::Install::Makefile
  • Module::Install::Metadata
  • Module::Install::Win32
  • Module::Install::WriteAll

proper_libs

Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/Module.pm' for a module named 'Your::Module'. If you need to provide additional files, e.g. for testing, that should not be considered for Kwalitee, then you should look at the 'provides' map in META.yml to limit the files scanned; or use the 'no_index' map to exclude parts of the distribution.

use_warnings

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: HoneyClient::Manager::FW, Module::AutoInstall, Module::Install, Module::Install::AutoInstall, Module::Install::Base, Module::Install::Can, Module::Install::Fetch, Module::Install::Include, Module::Install::Makefile, Module::Install::Metadata, Module::Install::Win32, Module::Install::WriteAll

build_prereq_matches_use

List all modules used in the test suite in META.yml build_requires
