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.
|no pax headers||
This distribution is archived with PAX extended headers, which may be useful under some environments, but may also make extraction fail under other environments (Archive::Tar ignores PAX information as well).
If you use Mac OS X >= 10.6, use gnu tar (/usr/bin/gnutar) to avoid PAX headers. It's also important to rename (shorten) long file names (>= 100 characters) in the distribution.
This distribution has at least one file with non-portable characters in its filename, which may cause problems under some environments.
Rename those files with alphanumerical characters, or maybe remove them because in many cases they are automatically generated for local installation.
|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.
|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.
