Kwalitee Issues


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'


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.


  • MANIFEST (155) does not match dist (164):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: .shipit, MANIFEST.SKIP, discount-2.1.5a/makepage.1, discount-2.1.5a/makepage.c, discount-2.1.5a/markdown.1, discount-2.1.5a/markdown.3, discount-2.1.5a/markdown.7, discount-2.1.5a/markdown.c, discount-2.1.5a/markdown.h, discount-2.1.5a/mkd2html.1, discount-2.1.5a/mkd2html.c, discount-2.1.5a/, discount-2.1.5a/mktags.c, discount-2.1.5a/theme.1, discount-2.1.5a/theme.c, discount-2.1.5a/
  • Missing in Dist:, Discount.c, Discount.o, MYMETA.json, MYMETA.yml, discount-2.1.5a/Makefile, discount-2.1.5a/github_flavoured.o


If you use Mac OS X >= 10.6, use gnu tar (/usr/bin/gnutar) to avoid PAX headers. It's also important to rename (shorten) long file names (>= 100 characters) in the distribution.

Error: pax_global_header,pax_global_header


Fix the version(s).


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


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.


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