Kwalitee Issues


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


Fix the version(s).


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


If you are using Build.PL define the {requires}{perl} = VERSION field. If you are using MakeMaker (Makefile.PL) you should upgrade ExtUtils::MakeMaker to 6.48 and use MIN_PERL_VERSION parameter. Perl::MinimumVersion can help you determine which version of Perl your module needs.


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.

Error: Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::Botsnack, Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::Dice, Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::Excuse, Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::Insult, Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::Magic8Ball, Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::Nickometer, Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::Summon, Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::Zippy


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


Add a 'repository' resource to the META.yml via 'meta_add' accessor (for Module::Build) or META_ADD parameter (for ExtUtils::MakeMaker).
