Kwalitee Issues


Use a proper tool to make a distribution. You might also need to fix META files if you keep them in the repository.

Error: Class-DBI-Cascade-Nullify


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 (8) does not match dist (30):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: .DS_Store, ._.DS_Store, ._Build.PL, ._Changes, ._MANIFEST, ._META.yml, ._Makefile.PL, ._README, lib/.DS_Store, lib/._.DS_Store, lib/Class/.DS_Store, lib/Class/._.DS_Store, lib/Class/DBI/.DS_Store, lib/Class/DBI/._.DS_Store, lib/Class/DBI/Cascade/.DS_Store, lib/Class/DBI/Cascade/._.DS_Store, lib/Class/DBI/Cascade/Plugin/.DS_Store, lib/Class/DBI/Cascade/Plugin/._.DS_Store, lib/Class/DBI/Cascade/Plugin/, t/.DS_Store, t/._.DS_Store, t/._00-load.t


Make sure that the main module name and version are the same of the distribution.


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


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.


  • ._.DS_Store
  • ._Build.PL
  • ._Changes
  • ._META.yml
  • ._Makefile.PL
  • ._README
  • lib/._.DS_Store
  • lib/Class/._.DS_Store
  • lib/Class/DBI/._.DS_Store

  • lib/Class/DBI/Cascade/Plugin/._.DS_Store
  • lib/Class/DBI/Cascade/Plugin/
  • t/._.DS_Store
  • t/._00-load.t


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


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