|has meta yml||
Add a META.yml to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.
|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.
|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.
This distribution does not 'use strict;' (or its equivalents) in all of its modules. Note that this is not about the actual strictness of the modules. It's bad if nobody can tell whether the modules are strictly written or not, without reading the source code of your favorite clever module that actually enforces strictness. In other words, it's bad if someone feels the need to add 'use strict' to your modules.
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.
|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.
|prereq matches use||
This distribution uses a module or a dist that's not listed as a prerequisite.
List all used modules in META.yml requires
|package version matches dist version||
None of the package versions in this distribution matches the distribution version.
Fix the version(s).
|meta yml has license||
This distribution does not have a license defined in META.yml.
This distribution is not required by another distribution by another author.
Convince / force / bribe another CPAN author to use this distribution.
These fails are not serious and don't affect your Kwalitee scores at all.
|has separate license file||
This distribution does not have a LICENSE or LICENCE file in its root directory.
