Kwalitee Issues


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


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: *** ERROR: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' at line 292 in file libwww-perl-5.50/lib/LWP/


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • MD5


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: Bundle::LWP, HTTP::Negotiate, LWP, LWP::Debug, LWP::MemberMixin


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

Error: 0.03,1.02,1.03,1.07,1.09,1.11,1.14,1.17,1.19,1.21,1.22,1.23,1.26,1.27,1.33,1.34,1.36,1.37,1.43,1.74,5.50


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


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, or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules warn when something bad happens.

Error: Bundle::LWP, File::Listing, HTML::Form, HTTP::Cookies, HTTP::Daemon, HTTP::Date, HTTP::Headers, HTTP::Headers::Auth, HTTP::Headers::ETag, HTTP::Headers::Util, HTTP::Message, HTTP::Negotiate, HTTP::Request, HTTP::Request::Common, HTTP::Response, HTTP::Status, LWP, LWP::Authen::Basic, LWP::Authen::Digest, LWP::Debug, LWP::MediaTypes, LWP::MemberMixin, LWP::Protocol, LWP::Protocol::GHTTP, LWP::Protocol::data, LWP::Protocol::file, LWP::Protocol::ftp, LWP::Protocol::gopher, LWP::Protocol::http, LWP::Protocol::https, LWP::Protocol::mailto, LWP::Protocol::nntp, LWP::RobotUA, LWP::Simple, LWP::UserAgent, WWW::RobotRules, WWW::RobotRules::AnyDBM_File


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