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 report us if they are false.
This distribution doesn't extract well due to several reasons such as unsupported archive type (CPANTS only supports tar.gz, tgz and zip archives), file permissions, broken links, invalid filenames, and so on. Most of other kwalitee metrics should be ignored.
Pack the distribution with a proper command such as "make dist" and "./Build dist", or use a distribution builder such as Dist::Zilla, Dist::Milla, Minilla. You might also need to set some options or environmental variables to ensure your archiver work portably.
|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' to all modules, or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules are strictly written.
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).
|metayml declares perl version||
This distribution does not declare the minimum perl version in META.yml.
There is more than one .pm file in the base dir, or the .pm files are not in lib/ directory.
Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/Module.pm' for a module named 'Your::Module'.
This distribution does not 'use warnings;' in all of its modules. Note that this is not about that your modules actually warn when something bad happens. It's bad if nobody can tell if a module warns or not, without reading the source code of your favorite module that actually enforces warnings. In other words, it's bad if someone feels the need to add 'use warnings' to your modules.
Add 'use warnings' 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.
This distribution is not required by another distribution by another author.
Convince / force / bribe another CPAN author to use this distribution.
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.
Add all modules contained in this distribution to the META.yml field 'provides'. Module::Build does this automatically for you.
