This distribution doesn't create a directory and extracts its content into this directory. Instead, it creates more than one directories (some of which are probably system-specific hidden files/directories), or it spews its content into the current directory, making it really hard/annoying to remove the unpacked package.
Pack the distribution with a proper command such as "make dist" and "./Build dist", or use a distribution builder such as Dist::Zilla, Dist::Milla, Minilla.
The file "MANIFEST" is missing from this distribution. The MANIFEST lists all files included in the distribution.
Add a MANIFEST to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it (eg "make manifest" or "./Build manifest")
