|no pax headers||
This distribution is archived with PAX extended headers, which may be useful under some environments, but may also make extraction fail under other environments (Archive::Tar ignores PAX information as well).
If you use Mac OS X >= 10.6, use gnu tar (/usr/bin/gnutar) to avoid PAX headers. It's also important to rename (shorten) long file names (>= 100 characters) in the distribution.
|buildtool not executable||
The build tool (Build.PL/Makefile.PL) is executable. This is bad because you should specify which perl you want to use while installing.
Change the permissions of Build.PL/Makefile.PL to not-executable.
|no pod errors||
The documentation for this distribution contains syntactic errors in its POD. Note that this metric tests all .pl, .pm and .pod files, even if they are in t/. See 'pod_message' in the dist error view for more info.
Remove the POD errors. You can check for POD errors automatically by including Test::Pod to your test suite.
|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
|meta yml declares perl version||
This distribution does not declare the minimum perl version in META.yml.
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.
Add a 'repository' resource to the META.yml via 'meta_add' accessor (for Module::Build) or META_ADD parameter (for ExtUtils::MakeMaker).
|has separate license file||
This distribution does not have a LICENSE or LICENCE file in its root directory.
This is not a critical issue. Currently mainly informative for the CPANTS authors. It might be removed later.
