Kwalitee Issues


Take a look at the META.yml Spec at (for version 1.4) or (for version 2), and change your META.yml accordingly.

Error: '<undef>' for 'Test::Differences' is not a valid version. (requires -> Test::Differences) [Validation: 1.4];Missing mandatory field, 'abstract' (abstract) [Validation: 1.4];value is an undefined string (abstract) [Validation: 1.4]


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

Error: 2.019003,2.15,2.17,2.19


Add =head1 LICENSE and/or the proper text of the well-known license to the main module in your code.


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: Text::FIGlet, Text::FIGlet::Control, Text::FIGlet::Font, Text::FIGlet::Illuminated, Text::FIGlet::Ransom


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


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.


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