The site is under maintenance.

Most probably the CPANTS databases are being regenerated from scratch behind the scenes due to the major change in Kwalitee metrics or the update of relevant modules/perl. Usually this maintenance takes about a day or two, and some of the information may be old or missing tentatively. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Kwalitee Fails

Core metrics

These fails do affect your Kwalitee scores. This distribution may not be installed cleanly, or may have some issues in license or documentation. Please consider fixing them, or tell us if they are false.

metricremedy
buildtool not executable

The build tool (Build.PL/Makefile.PL) is executable. This is bad because you should specify which perl you want to use while installing.

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

consistent version

This distribution has .pm files with inconsistent versions.

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

package version matches dist version

None of the package versions in this distribution matches the distribution version.

Fix the version(s).

Extra metrics

These fails affect your total Kwalitee score, but don't affect the one for the Game. Some of them should be fixed by all means. Others are just matters of taste.

metricremedy
metayml declares perl version

This distribution does not declare the minimum perl version in META.yml.

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.

metayml 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.

is prereq

This distribution is not required by another distribution by another author.

Convince / force / bribe another CPAN author to use this distribution.

Experimental metrics

These fails are not serious and don't affect your Kwalitee scores at all.

metricremedy
metayml has provides

This distribution does not have a list of provided modules defined in META.yml.

Add all modules contained in this distribution to the META.yml field 'provides'. Module::Build does this automatically for you.

easily repackageable by fedora

It is easy to repackage this module by Fedora.

Fix each one of the metrics this depends on.

fits fedora license

Fits the licensing requirements of Fedora (Acceptable licenses: (perl, apache, artistic_2, gpl, lgpl, mit, mozilla)).

Replace the license or convince Fedora to accept this license as well.
