|meta yml is parsable||
The META.yml file of this distribution could not be parsed by the version of CPAN::Meta::YAML.pm CPANTS is using.
Upgrade your YAML generator so it produces valid YAML.
|no dot underscore files||
This distribution has dot underscore files which may cause various problems.
If you use Mac OS X, set COPYFILE_DISABLE (for OS 10.5 and better) or COPY_EXTENDED_ATTRIBUTES_DISABLE (for OS 10.4) environmental variable to true to exclude dot underscore files from a distribution.
|no broken module install||
This distribution uses an obsolete version of Module::Install. Versions of Module::Install prior to 0.61 might not work on some systems at all. Additionally if your Makefile.PL uses the 'auto_install()' feature, you need at least version 0.64. Also, 1.04 is known to be broken.
Upgrade the bundled version of Module::Install to the most current release. Alternatively, you can switch to another build system / installer that does not suffer from this problem. (ExtUtils::MakeMaker, Module::Build both of which have their own set of problems.)
|manifest matches dist||
MANIFEST does not match the contents of this distribution.
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.
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.
|prereq matches use||
This distribution uses a module or a dist that's not listed as a prerequisite.
List all used modules in META.yml requires
This distribution has .pm files with inconsistent versions.
Split the distribution, or fix the version numbers to make them consistent (use the highest version number to avoid version downgrade).
|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.
These fails are not serious and don't affect your Kwalitee scores at all.
|has separate license file||
This distribution does not have a LICENSE or LICENCE file in its root directory.
