|has meta yml||
The file "META.yml" is missing from this distribution. META.yml is needed by people maintaining module collections (like CPAN), for people writing installation tools, or just people who want to know some stuff about a distribution before downloading it.
Add a META.yml to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.
|no generated files||
This distribution has files/directories that should be generated at build time, not distributed by the author.
Remove the offending files/directories!
|no dot underscore files||
This distribution has dot underscore files which may cause various problems.
If you use Mac OS X, set COPYFILE_DISABLE (for OS 10.5 and better) or COPY_EXTENDED_ATTRIBUTES_DISABLE (for OS 10.4) environmental variable to true to exclude dot underscore files from a distribution.
|no mymeta files||
This distribution contains MYMETA.* files which should be used only locally. This metric should be integrated into 'no_generated_files' eventually, but as MYMETA.* files are recent inventions, you might need to take special care if MANIFEST.SKIP exists in your distribution. Hence this metric.
Update MANIFEST.SKIP to exclude MYMETA files. If you are lazy, add "#!install_default" in your MANIFEST.SKIP and update your ExtUtils::Manifest if necessary, then some of the most common files will be excluded.
|has human readable license||
This distribution does not have a license defined in the documentation or in a file called LICENSE
Add a section called "LICENSE" to the documentation, or add a file named LICENSE to the distribution.
|has license in source file||
Does not have license information in any of its source files
Add =head1 LICENSE and the text of the license to the main module in your code.
|manifest matches dist||
MANIFEST does not match the contents of this distribution.
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.
|has abstract in pod||
No abstract (short description of a module) is found in pod from this distribution.
Provide a short description in the NAME section of the pod (after the module name followed by a hyphen) at least for the main module of this distribution.
|meta yml declares perl version||
This distribution does not declare the minimum perl version in META.yml.
|meta yml has license||
This distribution does not have a license defined in META.yml.
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.
|has known license in source file||
Does not have license information in any of its source files, or the information is not recognized by Software::License
Add =head1 LICENSE and/or the proper text of the well-known license to the main module in your code.
This distribution is not required by another distribution by another author.
Convince / force / bribe another CPAN author to use this distribution.
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.
|meta yml has repository resource||
This distribution does not have a link to a repository in META.yml.
|has separate license file||
