Kwalitee Issues


Provide a short description in the NAME section of the pod (after the module name followed by a hyphen) at least for the main module of this distribution.


Add a Changelog (best named 'Changes') to the distribution. It should list at least major changes implemented in newer versions.


Add a MANIFEST to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it (eg "make manifest" or "./Build manifest")


Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install it.


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.

Error: Cannot find MANIFEST in dist.


Take a look at the META.yml Spec at (for version 1.4) or (for version 2), and change your META.yml accordingly.

Error: Missing mandatory field, 'abstract' (abstract) [Validation: 1.4];value is an undefined string (abstract) [Validation: 1.4]


Remove the POD errors. You can check for POD errors automatically by including Test::Pod to your test suite.

Error: Ravenel/lib/Ravenel/ -- Around line 499: '=item' outside of any '=over' =over without closing =back


Add a META.json to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.


Add 'use warnings' (or its equivalents) 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.

Error: Ravenel, Ravenel::Block, Ravenel::Redirect, Ravenel::SubScraper, Ravenel::Tag, Ravenel::Tag::Include, Ravenel::Tag::Replace, Ravenel::Tag::Static


This is not a critical issue. Currently mainly informative for the CPANTS authors. It might be removed later.


Add all modules contained in this distribution to the META.yml field 'provides'. Module::Build or Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides do this automatically for you.


Add a 'repository' resource to the META.yml via 'meta_add' accessor (for Module::Build) or META_ADD parameter (for ExtUtils::MakeMaker).
