Add a META.yml to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.
Add a Changelog (best named 'Changes') to the distribution. It should list at least major changes implemented in newer versions.
Remove the offending files/directories!
Add a section called "LICENSE" to the documentation, or add a file named LICENSE to the distribution.
Add =head1 LICENSE and the text of the license to the main module in your code.
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 (7) does not match dist (10):
- Missing in MANIFEST: Makefile, examples/.test.pl.swp, lib/HTML/.Chunks.pm.swp
Make sure that the main module name and version are the same of the distribution.
Remove the POD errors. You can check for POD errors automatically by including Test::Pod to your test suite.
Error: HTML-Chunks/lib/HTML/ChunkLocal.pm -- Around line 93: =over without closing =back
Add a META.json to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.
Add tests or move tests.pl to the t/ directory!
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.
Add =head1 LICENSE and/or the proper text of the well-known license to the main module in your code.
Add 'use warnings' (or its equivalents) to all modules, or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules warn when something bad happens.
Error: HTML::ChunkLocal, HTML::Chunks
Split the distribution, or fix the version numbers to make them consistent (use the highest version number to avoid version downgrade).
This is not a critical issue. Currently mainly informative for the CPANTS authors. It might be removed later.
