Kwalitee Issues

manifest_matches_dist

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.

Error:

  • MANIFEST (24) does not match dist (46):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: ._CHANGES, ._COPYING, ._CREDITS, ._FAQ, ._INSTALL, ._Makefile.PL, ._RDB.pm, ._README, ._TODO, ._dbi_sample.cfg, ._xml_rdb, RDB/._MakeTables.pm, RDB/._PopulateTables.pm, RDB/._UnpopulateSchema.pm, RDB/._UnpopulateTables.pm, t/._1.t, t/._dbi_mysql_test.cfg, t/._dbi_pg_test.cfg, t/._dbi_sqlite3_test.cfg, t/._expected.test_new.xml, t/._expected.test_schema.sql, t/._test.xml

meta_yml_conforms_to_known_spec

Take a look at the META.yml Spec at http://module-build.sourceforge.net/META-spec-v1.4.html (for version 1.4) or http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?CPAN::Meta::Spec (for version 2), and change your META.yml accordingly.

Error: '.04' for 'DBIx::Sequence' is not a valid version. (requires -> DBIx::Sequence) [Validation: 1.0];'.16' for 'DBIx::DBSchema' is not a valid version. (requires -> DBIx::DBSchema) [Validation: 1.0];'.23' for 'DBIx::Recordset' is not a valid version. (requires -> DBIx::Recordset) [Validation: 1.0]

no_pod_errors

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

Error: XML-RDB-1.3/RDB.pm -- Around line 1341: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding in '©'. Assuming ISO8859-1

use_strict

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: ._RDB, RDB::._MakeTables, RDB::._PopulateTables, RDB::._UnpopulateSchema, RDB::._UnpopulateTables

consistent_version

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

Error: 1.0,1.2,1.3

has_meta_json

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

meta_yml_declares_perl_version

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.

meta_yml_has_license

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.

no_dot_underscore_files

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.

  • t/._expected.test_schema.sql
  • t/._test.xml

proper_libs

Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/Module.pm' for a module named 'Your::Module'. If you need to provide additional files, e.g. for testing, that should not be considered for Kwalitee, then you should look at the 'provides' map in META.yml to limit the files scanned; or use the 'no_index' map to exclude parts of the distribution.

Error: ._RDB.pm, RDB/._MakeTables.pm, RDB/._PopulateTables.pm, RDB/._UnpopulateSchema.pm, RDB/._UnpopulateTables.pm, RDB.pm, RDB/MakeTables.pm, RDB/PopulateTables.pm, RDB/UnpopulateSchema.pm, RDB/UnpopulateTables.pm

use_warnings

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: ._RDB, RDB::._MakeTables, RDB::._PopulateTables, RDB::._UnpopulateSchema, RDB::._UnpopulateTables, XML::RDB, XML::RDB::MakeTables, XML::RDB::PopulateTables, XML::RDB::UnpopulateSchema, XML::RDB::UnpopulateTables

meta_yml_has_provides

Add all modules contained in this distribution to the META.yml field 'provides'. Module::Build or Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides do this automatically for you.

meta_yml_has_repository_resource

Add a 'repository' resource to the META.yml via 'meta_add' accessor (for Module::Build) or META_ADD parameter (for ExtUtils::MakeMaker).
