Kwalitee Issues


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


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.


  • MANIFEST (139) does not match dist (145):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: t/mailboxes/mailbox with space.txt, t/mailboxes/mailbox with space.txt.gz, t/results/length_mailbox with space.stdout, t/results/line_number_mailbox with space.stdout, t/results/number_mailbox with space.stdout, t/results/offset_mailbox with space.stdout, t/results/reset_mailbox with space.stdout
  • Duplicates in MANIFEST: t/results/reset_newlines_at_beginning.stdout


Take a look at the META.yml Spec at (for version 1.4) or (for version 2), and change your META.yml accordingly.

Error: License 'gpl2' is invalid (license) [Validation: 1.4]


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

Error: 0.0102,0.0200,1.3002,1.5105,1.6005,1.7005


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


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: Mail::Mbox::MessageParser, Mail::Mbox::MessageParser::Cache, Mail::Mbox::MessageParser::Config, Mail::Mbox::MessageParser::Grep, Mail::Mbox::MessageParser::MetaInfo, Mail::Mbox::MessageParser::Perl


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.
