Kwalitee Issues


Sign the dist as the last step before creating the archive. Take care not to modify/regenerate dist meta files or the manifest.

Error: gpgkeys: key 23CC65746B8F85CA not found on keyserver gpg: Signature made Wed Oct 22 18:58:00 2008 JST using DSA key ID 6B8F85CA gpg: requesting key 6B8F85CA from hkp server gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found. gpg: Can't check signature: public key not found ==> BAD/TAMPERED signature detected! <==


Split the distribution, or fix the version numbers to make them consistent (use the highest version number to avoid version downgrade).

Error: 0.10,0.12


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


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.


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).
