Kwalitee Issues


Pack the distribution with a proper command such as "make dist" and "./Build dist", or use a distribution builder such as Dist::Zilla, Dist::Milla, Minilla.

Error: More than one top directories are found: ._Data-ObjectGenerator;Data-ObjectGenerator


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


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.


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • Config::JSON
  • String::Random


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.


If you use Mac OS X, set COPYFILE_DISABLE (for OS 10.5 and better) or COPY_EXTENDED_ATTRIBUTES_DISABLE (for OS 10.4) environmental variable to true to exclude dot underscore files from a distribution.

Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/' 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: Data-ObjectGenerator/lib/Data/, Data-ObjectGenerator/lib/Data/ObjectGenerator/


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