Kwalitee Issues

has_changelog

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

manifest_matches_dist

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:

  • MANIFEST (7) does not match dist (6):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: lib/Template/Plugin/HTML/2Text.pm, t/Template-Plugin-HTML-2Text.t
  • Missing in Dist: Changes, lib/Template/Plugin/HTML/BBCode.pm, t/Template-Plugin-HTML-BBCode.t

package_version_matches_dist_version

Fix the version(s).

prereq_matches_use

List all used modules in META.yml requires

Error:

  • strict
  • vars

has_meta_json

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

meta_yml_declares_perl_version

If you are using Build.PL define the {requires}{perl} = VERSION field. If you are using MakeMaker (Makefile.PL) you should upgrade ExtUtils::MakeMaker to 6.48 and use MIN_PERL_VERSION parameter. Perl::MinimumVersion can help you determine which version of Perl your module needs.

meta_yml_has_license

Define the license if you are using in Build.PL. If you are using MakeMaker (Makefile.PL) you should upgrade to ExtUtils::MakeMaker version 6.31.

use_warnings

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: Template::Plugin::HTML::2Text

build_prereq_matches_use

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

Error:

  • Test::More

has_separate_license_file

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

meta_yml_has_provides

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

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