This distribution has at least one file with non-portable characters in its filename, which may cause problems under some environments.
Rename those files with alphanumerical characters, or maybe remove them because in many cases they are automatically generated for local installation.
|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.
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 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'. If you need to provide additional files, e.g. for testing, that should not be considered for Kwalitee, then you should look at the 'provides' map in META.yml to limit the files scanned; or use the 'no_index' map to exclude parts of the distribution.
This distribution does not 'use warnings;' (or its equivalents) 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' (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.
|no unauthorized packages||
Apparently this distribution has unauthorized packages now.
Ask the owner of the distribution (the one who released it first, or the one who is designated in x_authority) to give you a (co-)maintainer's permission.
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.
|meta yml has provides||
This distribution does not have a list of provided modules defined in META.yml.
|meta yml has repository resource||
This distribution does not have a link to a repository in META.yml.
