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.

extracts nicely

This distribution doesn't create a directory and extracts its content into this directory. Instead, it creates more than one directories (some of which are probably system-specific hidden files/directories), or it spews its content into the current directory, making it really hard/annoying to remove the unpacked package.

Pack the distribution with a proper command such as "make dist" and "./Build dist", or use a distribution builder such as Dist::Zilla, Dist::Milla, Minilla.

has proper version

The version number isn't a number. It probably contains letter besides a leading 'v', which it shouldn't

Remove all letters from the version number. If you want to mark a release as a developer release, use the scheme 'Module-1.00_01'

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.

has human readable license

This distribution does not have a license defined in the documentation or in a file called LICENSE

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

has license in source file

Does not have license information in any of its source files

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

package version matches dist version

None of the package versions in this distribution matches the distribution version.

Fix the version(s).

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.

meta yml 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.

meta yml has license

This distribution does not have a license defined in META.yml.

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.

has known license in source file

Does not have license information in any of its source files, or the information is not recognized by Software::License

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

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.

meta yml 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.
