|meta yml conforms to known spec||
META.yml does not conform to any recognised META.yml Spec.
Take a look at the META.yml Spec at http://module-build.sourceforge.net/META-spec-v1.4.html (for version 1.4) or http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?CPAN::Meta::Spec (for version 2), and change your META.yml accordingly.
The distribution hasn't got a Changelog (named something like m/^chang(es?|log)|history$/i. A Changelog helps people decide if they want to upgrade to a new version.
Add a Changelog (best named 'Changes') to the distribution. It should list at least major changes implemented in newer versions.
This distribution doesn't contain either a file called 'test.pl' or a directory called 't'. This indicates that it doesn't contain even the most basic test-suite. This is really BAD!
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.
|meta yml declares perl version||
This distribution does not declare the minimum perl version in META.yml.
|has tests in t dir||
This distribution contains either a file called 'test.pl' (the old test file) or is missing a directory called 't'. This indicates that it uses the old test mechanism or it has no test-suite.
Add tests or move tests.pl to the t/ directory!
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.
