Kwalitee Issues


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


Add tests!


Remove all letters from the version number. If you want to mark a release as a developer release, use the scheme 'Module-1.00_01'


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.


Provide a short description in the NAME section of the pod (after the module name followed by a hyphen) at least for the main module of this distribution.


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • DBD::mysql
  • DBI
  • File::Cache
  • HTML::Parser
  • LWP::UserAgent
  • Log::Agent
  • Log::Agent::Driver::File
  • Log::Agent::Rotate
  • Time::CTime
  • Time::ParseDate
  • URI


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


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


Add tests or move to the t/ directory!


Use the prompt() method from ExtUtils::MakeMaker/Module::Build.


Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/' for a module named 'Your::Module'. If you need to provide additional files, e.g. for testing, that should not be considered for Kwalitee, then you should look at the 'provides' map in META.yml to limit the files scanned; or use the 'no_index' map to exclude parts of the distribution.

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: NewsClipper::AcquisitionFunctions, NewsClipper::Cache, NewsClipper::Globals, NewsClipper::HTMLTools, NewsClipper::Handler, NewsClipper::HandlerFactory, NewsClipper::Interpreter, NewsClipper::Parser, NewsClipper::Server, NewsClipper::Server::CGI, NewsClipper::Server::MySQL, NewsClipper::TagParser, NewsClipper::Types


Ask the owner of the distribution (the one who released it first, or the one who is designated in x_authority) to give you a (co-)maintainer's permission.

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

Error: 0.1,0.12,0.3,0.33,0.35,0.44,0.67,0.7,0.72,0.91


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