The file "README" is missing from this distribution. The README provides some basic information to users prior to downloading and unpacking the distribution.
Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install it.
The file "MANIFEST" is missing from this distribution. The MANIFEST lists all files included in the distribution.
Add a MANIFEST to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it (eg "make manifest" or "./Build manifest")
|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.
Makefile.PL and/or Build.PL are missing. This makes installing this distribution hard for humans and impossible for automated tools like CPAN/CPANPLUS/cpanminus.
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.
The distribution filename (eg. Foo-Bar-1.42.tar.gz) does not include a version number (or something that looks like a reasonable version number to CPAN::DistnameInfo)
Add a version number to the packed distribution. Or use a buildtool ('make dist' or 'Build dist')
|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'
|has human readable license||
This distribution does not have a license defined in the documentation or in a file called LICENSE
Add a section called "LICENSE" to the documentation, or add a file named LICENSE to the distribution.
|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.
|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.
|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.
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.
