Kwalitee Issues


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


Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install it.


Fix the version(s).


Remove the POD errors. You can check for POD errors automatically by including Test::Pod to your test suite.

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

Error: 0.3,0.4


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.


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: Queue/, Queue/, Queue/, Queue/, Queue/


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: Spread::Queue::FIFO, Spread::Queue::ManagedWorker, Spread::Queue::Manager, Spread::Queue::Sender, Spread::Queue::Worker

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