Kwalitee Issues


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


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


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

Error: MailFolder-0.07/Mail/Folder/ -- Around line 183: You forgot a '=back' before '=head2' MailFolder-0.07/Mail/Folder/ -- Around line 339: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 395: You forgot a '=back' before '=head2'Around line 477: You forgot a '=back' before '=head2'


Rename those files with alphanumerical characters, or maybe remove them because in many cases they are automatically generated for local installation.


  • testfolders/maildir_seed/cur/839214040.1024.fargle.fz:2,FR


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • Date::Format
  • Date::Parse
  • File::Sync
  • MIME::Head
  • MIME::Parser
  • Mail::Address
  • Mail::Header
  • Mail::Internet


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


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.


Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/' 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.

Error: Mail/, Mail/Folder/, Mail/Folder/, Mail/Folder/, Mail/Folder/


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::Folder, Mail::Folder::Emaul, Mail::Folder::Maildir, Mail::Folder::Mbox, Mail::Folder::NNTP


This is not a critical issue. Currently mainly informative for the CPANTS authors. It might be removed later.
