Kwalitee Issues


Add =head1 LICENSE and the text of the license to the main module in your code.


Fix the version(s).


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.


  • MANIFEST (204) does not match dist (206):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: pod/pod2htmd.tmp, pod/pod2htmi.tmp


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

Error: License 'artistic, gpl2+' is invalid (license) [Validation: 1.4];Missing mandatory field, 'abstract' (abstract) [Validation: 1.4];value is an undefined string (abstract) [Validation: 1.4]


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

Error: makepp- -- Around line 106: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding in '“short-circuiting”'. Assuming UTF-8 makepp- -- Around line 11: alternative text '$/' contains non-escaped | or /


Add 'use strict' (or its equivalents) to all modules, or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules are strictly written.

Error: Mpp::BuildCheck, Mpp::Event, Mpp::Fixer::Automake, Mpp::Fixer::CMake, Mpp::Recursive, Mpp::Repository, Mpp::Signature, Mpp::Text


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: Mpp, Mpp::BuildCache, Mpp::BuildCacheControl, Mpp::BuildCheck, Mpp::BuildCheck::architecture_independent, Mpp::BuildCheck::exact_match, Mpp::BuildCheck::ignore_action, Mpp::BuildCheck::only_action, Mpp::BuildCheck::target_newer, Mpp::Cmds, Mpp::CommandParser, Mpp::CommandParser::Esql, Mpp::CommandParser::Gcc, Mpp::CommandParser::Swig, Mpp::CommandParser::Vcs, Mpp::Event, Mpp::File, Mpp::File, Mpp::Fixer::Automake, Mpp::Fixer::CMake, Mpp::Glob, Mpp::Lexer, Mpp::Makefile, Mpp::Recursive, Mpp::Repository, Mpp::Rule, Mpp::Scanner, Mpp::Scanner::C, Mpp::Scanner::Esqlc, Mpp::Scanner::Swig, Mpp::Scanner::Vera, Mpp::Scanner::Verilog, Mpp::Signature, Mpp::Signature::c_compilation_md5, Mpp::Signature::md5, Mpp::Signature::shared_object, Mpp::Signature::verilog_synthesis_md5, Mpp::Signature::xml, Mpp::Signature::xml_space, Mpp::Subs, Mpp::Text, Mpp::Utils


List all modules used in the test suite in META.yml build_requires


  • HTTP::ProxyAutoConfig
  • HTTP::ProxyPAC
  • Win32::Registry


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.
