Kwalitee Issues


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


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.


  • MANIFEST (14) does not match dist (16):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: patches/LWPng-0.24-patch-1, patches/LWPng-0.24-patch-2


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

Error: WebFS-FileCopy-1.04/lib/WebFS/FileCopy/ -- Around line 89: You can't have =items (as at line 93) unless the first thing after the =over is an =itemAround line 109: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' WebFS-FileCopy-1.04/lib/WebFS/ -- Around line 1053: =back doesn't take any parameters, but you said =back 4


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • HTTP::Request::Common
  • HTTP::Response
  • URI
  • URI::file


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.


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: WebFS::FileCopy, WebFS::FileCopy::Put, WebFS::FileCopy::Put::FTP, WebFS::FileCopy::Put::File

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