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 report us if they are false.

metricremedy
metayml conforms to known spec

META.yml does not conform to any recognised META.yml Spec.

Take a look at the META.yml Spec at http://module-build.sourceforge.net/META-spec-v1.4.html (for version 1.4) or http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?CPAN::Meta::Spec (for version 2), and change your META.yml accordingly.

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.

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.

proper libs

There is more than one .pm file in the base dir, or the .pm files are not in lib/ directory.

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'.

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 does 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 fedora

It is easy to repackage this module by Fedora.

Fix each one of the metrics this depends on.

fits fedora license

Fits the licensing requirements of Fedora (Acceptable licenses: (perl, apache, artistic_2, gpl, lgpl, mit, mozilla)).

Replace the license or convince Fedora to accept this license as well.
