|has meta yml||
The file "META.yml" is missing from this distribution. META.yml is needed by people maintaining module collections (like CPAN), for people writing installation tools, or just people who want to know some stuff about a distribution before downloading it.
Add a META.yml to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.
|has proper version||
The version number isn't a number. It probably contains letter besides a leading 'v', which it shouldn't
Remove all letters from the version number. If you want to mark a release as a developer release, use the scheme 'Module-1.00_01'
|no dot dirs||
This distribution has a dot directory, which most probably derives from a version control system.
Fix MANIFEST (or MANIFEST.SKIP) to exclude dot directories from a distribution. Use an appropriate tool and avoid archiving your working directory by hand. If you switch your version control system, remove old VCS directories after you migrate.
|has license in source file||
Does not have license information in any of its source files
Add =head1 LICENSE and the text of the license to the main module in your code.
|manifest matches dist||
MANIFEST does not match the contents of this distribution.
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.
|no pod errors||
The documentation for this distribution contains syntactic errors in its POD. Note that this metric tests all .pl, .pm and .pod files, even if they are in t/. See 'pod_message' in the dist error view for more info.
Remove the POD errors. You can check for POD errors automatically by including Test::Pod to your test suite.
|package version matches dist version||
None of the package versions in this distribution matches the distribution version.
Fix the version(s).
|has tests in t dir||
This distribution contains either a file called 'test.pl' (the old test file) or is missing a directory called 't'. This indicates that it uses the old test mechanism or it has no test-suite.
Add tests or move tests.pl to the t/ directory!
|meta yml 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.
|has known license in source file||
Does not have license information in any of its source files, or the information is not recognized by Software::License
Add =head1 LICENSE and/or the proper text of the well-known license to the main module in your code.
This distribution is not required by another distribution by another author.
Convince / force / bribe another CPAN author to use this distribution.
Excellent. Your distribution passes all the experimental metrics.
