Kwalitee Fails

Core metrics

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 tell us if they are false.

extracts nicely

This distribution doesn't create a directory and extracts its content into this directory. Instead, it creates more than one directories (some of which are probably system-specific hidden files/directories), or it spews its content into the current directory, making it really hard/annoying to remove the unpacked package.

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.

distname matches name in meta

The distribution name (eg. 'Foo-Bar' of Foo-Bar-1.42.tar.gz) does not match the 'name' field in META files.

Use a proper tool to make a distribution. You might also need to fix META files if you keep them in the repository.

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.

Extra metrics

Excellent. Your distribution passes all the extra metrics.

Experimental metrics

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.

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.

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.

build prereq matches use

This distribution uses a module or a dist in its test suite that's not listed as a build prerequisite.

List all modules used in the test suite in META.yml build_requires
