Kwalitee Issues

has_buildtool

Add a Makefile.PL (for ExtUtils::MakeMaker/Module::Install) or a Build.PL (for Module::Build and its friends), or use a distribution builder such as Dist::Zilla, Dist::Milla, Minilla.

has_changelog

Add a Changelog (best named 'Changes') to the distribution. It should list at least major changes implemented in newer versions.

has_human_readable_license

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

has_license_in_source_file

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

has_manifest

Add a MANIFEST to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it (eg "make manifest" or "./Build manifest")

has_meta_yml

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

has_proper_version

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'

has_readme

Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install it.

has_tests

Add tests!

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: Cannot find MANIFEST in dist.

no_generated_files

Remove the offending files/directories!

Error: Makefile

package_version_matches_dist_version

Fix the version(s).

portable_filenames

Rename those files with alphanumerical characters, or maybe remove them because in many cases they are automatically generated for local installation.

Error:

  • DownVideos::DataSexta.3pm.gz

prereq_matches_use

List all used modules in META.yml requires

Error:

  • LWP::Simple
  • XML::Simple

has_known_license_in_source_file

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

has_meta_json

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

has_tests_in_t_dir

Add tests or move tests.pl to the t/ directory!

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.

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: DataSexta.pm, SextaXML.pm

has_separate_license_file

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