Kwalitee Issues


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


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'


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: Cannot find MANIFEST in dist.


Fix the version(s).


Rename those files with alphanumerical characters, or maybe remove them because in many cases they are automatically generated for local installation.


  • Compare/blib/man3/Time::Compare.3


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


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.


Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/' for a module named 'Your::Module'. If you need to provide additional files, e.g. for testing, that should not be considered for Kwalitee, then you should look at the 'provides' map in META.yml to limit the files scanned; or use the 'no_index' map to exclude parts of the distribution.

Error: Compare/, Compare/blib/lib/Time/


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