Under maintenance.

Most probably CPANTS databases are being regenerated from scratch due to major changes in Kwalitee metrics or updates of relevant modules/perl. Usually this maintenance takes about a day or two, and some of the information may be old or missing tentatively. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Kwalitee Issues


Change the permissions of Build.PL/Makefile.PL to not-executable.


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


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 (10) does not match dist (11):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: README


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

Error: Getopt-Declare-1.06/lib/Getopt/Declare.pod -- Around line 1331: You forgot a '=back' before '=head2'


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 '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: Getopt::Declare


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