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.
Add a MANIFEST to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it (eg "make manifest" or "./Build manifest")
Add a META.yml to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.
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'
Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install it.
Add a version number to the packed distribution. Or use a buildtool ('make dist' or 'Build 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.
Fix the version(s).
Add a META.json to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.
Add tests or move tests.pl to the t/ directory!
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.
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.
This is not a critical issue. Currently mainly informative for the CPANTS authors. It might be removed later.
