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.
The file "README" is missing from this distribution. The README provides some basic information to users prior to downloading and unpacking the distribution.
Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install it.
|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.
|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).
|metayml declares perl version||
This distribution does not declare the minimum perl version in META.yml.
|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.
These fails are not serious and don't affect your Kwalitee scores at all.
|metayml has provides||
This distribution does not have a list of provided modules defined in META.yml.
