Kwalitee Issues


Add a section called "LICENSE" to the documentation, or add a file named LICENSE to the distribution.


Add =head1 LICENSE and the text of the license to the main module in your code.


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 (8) does not match dist (87):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: bin/README.txt, bin/, bin/, bin/, t/README.txt, t/attr1.xml, t/attr2.xml, t/attr3.xml, t/bad_root.xml, t/chk1.xml, t/chk_batch.t, t/element_text.t, t/empty_elt.t, t/entity.xml, t/fail.xml, t/high_elt_number.t, t/insignif_ws.xml, t/no_root.xml, t/nodtd.xml, t/out/cp_attr1.err, t/out/cp_attr2.err, t/out/cp_attr3.err, t/out/cp_bad_root.err, t/out/cp_chk1.err, t/out/cp_entity.err, t/out/cp_fail.err, t/out/cp_insignif_ws.err, t/out/cp_no_root.err, t/out/cp_nodtd.err, t/out/cp_required_attr.err, t/out/cp_test.err, t/out/cp_two_elem_defs.err, t/out/cp_two_roots.err, t/out/dc_attr1.err, t/out/dc_attr2.err, t/out/dc_attr3.err, t/out/dc_bad_root.err, t/out/dc_chk1.err, t/out/dc_entity.err, t/out/dc_fail.err, t/out/dc_insignif_ws.err, t/out/dc_no_root.err, t/out/dc_nodtd.err, t/out/dc_required_attr.err, t/out/dc_test.err, t/out/dc_two_elem_defs.err, t/out/dc_two_roots.err, t/out/dv_attr1.err, t/out/dv_attr2.err, t/out/dv_attr3.err, t/out/dv_bad_root.err, t/out/dv_chk1.err, t/out/dv_entity.err, t/out/dv_fail.err, t/out/dv_insignif_ws.err, t/out/dv_no_root.err, t/out/dv_nodtd.err, t/out/dv_required_attr.err, t/out/dv_test.err, t/out/dv_two_elem_defs.err, t/out/dv_two_roots.err, t/out/sc_attr1.err, t/out/sc_attr2.err, t/out/sc_attr3.err, t/out/sc_bad_root.err, t/out/sc_chk1.err, t/out/sc_entity.err, t/out/sc_fail.err, t/out/sc_insignif_ws.err, t/out/sc_no_root.err, t/out/sc_nodtd.err, t/out/sc_required_attr.err, t/out/sc_test.err, t/out/sc_two_elem_defs.err, t/out/sc_two_roots.err, t/required_attr.xml, t/test.xml, t/two_elem_defs.xml, t/two_roots.xml


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • XML::DOM
  • XML::Parser
  • XML::RegExp


Add 'use strict' (or its equivalents) to all modules, or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules are strictly written.

Error: XML::Checker::DOM


Add =head1 LICENSE and/or the proper text of the well-known license to the main module in your code.


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.


Ask the owner of the distribution (the one who released it first, or the one who is designated in x_authority) to give you a (co-)maintainer's permission.

  • XML::Checker::Term
  • XML::DOM::ValParser


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: XML::Checker::DOM, XML::Checker::Parser, XML::DOM::ValParser


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