Kwalitee Issues


Change the permissions of Build.PL/Makefile.PL to not-executable.


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


Remove all letters from the version number. If you want to mark a release as a developer release, use the scheme 'Module-1.00_01'


Add tests!


Remove the POD errors. You can check for POD errors automatically by including Test::Pod to your test suite.

Error: Text-PDF-0.29/lib/Text/PDF/ -- Around line 20: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 24: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' Text-PDF-0.29/lib/Text/PDF/ -- Around line 30: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 44: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' Text-PDF-0.29/lib/Text/PDF/ -- Around line 27: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 31: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'


Fix the version(s).


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.

Error: Text::PDF, Text::PDF::File, Text::PDF::Objind, Text::PDF::SFont


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

Error: 0.27,0.29


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


Add tests or move to the t/ directory!


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.


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.


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: Text::PDF, Text::PDF::Array, Text::PDF::Bool, Text::PDF::Dict, Text::PDF::File, Text::PDF::Filter, Text::PDF::Name, Text::PDF::Null, Text::PDF::Number, Text::PDF::Objind, Text::PDF::Page, Text::PDF::Pages, Text::PDF::SFont, Text::PDF::String, Text::PDF::TTFont, Text::PDF::TTFont0, Text::PDF::Utils


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).
