Kwalitee Issues

has_tests

Add tests!

manifest_matches_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:

  • MANIFEST (40) does not match dist (22):
  • Missing in Dist: Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/Changes, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/Makefile.PL, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/README, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/bin/mcpandoc, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install/GithubMeta.pm, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install/Metadata.pm, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install/Scripts.pm, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install/Win32.pm, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install/WriteAll.pm, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/lib/Pod/Minicpandoc.pm, inc/Module/Install.pm, inc/Module/Install/AutoManifest.pm, inc/Module/Install/Base.pm, inc/Module/Install/Can.pm, inc/Module/Install/Fetch.pm, inc/Module/Install/Makefile.pm, inc/Module/Install/ManifestSkip.pm, inc/Module/Install/ReadmeFromPod.pm

consistent_version

Split the distribution, or fix the version numbers to make them consistent (use the highest version number to avoid version downgrade).

Error: 0.003,0.16,0.24,0.30,1.18

has_meta_json

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

has_tests_in_t_dir

Add tests or move tests.pl to the t/ directory!

no_unauthorized_packages

Ask the owner of the distribution (the one who released it first, or the one who is designated in x_authority) to give you a (co-)maintainer's permission.

Error:

  • Module::Install
  • Module::Install::AutoManifest
  • Module::Install::Base
  • Module::Install::Base::FakeAdmin
  • Module::Install::Can
  • Module::Install::Fetch
  • Module::Install::Makefile
  • Module::Install::ManifestSkip
  • Module::Install::ReadmeFromPod

proper_libs

Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/Module.pm' 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: Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install.pm, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install/AutoManifest.pm, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install/Base.pm, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install/Can.pm, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install/Fetch.pm, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install/Makefile.pm, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install/ManifestSkip.pm, Pod-Minicpandoc-0.16/inc/Module/Install/ReadmeFromPod.pm

use_warnings

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: Module::Install, Module::Install::Base, Module::Install::Can, Module::Install::Fetch, Module::Install::Makefile

has_separate_license_file

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

meta_yml_has_provides

Add all modules contained in this distribution to the META.yml field 'provides'. Module::Build or Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides do this automatically for you.
