Kwalitee Issues


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


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

Error: *** ERROR: '=item' outside of any '=over' at line 890 in file Apache-AuthDigest-0.022/contrib/ *** ERROR: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' at line 904 in file Apache-AuthDigest-0.022/contrib/


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • DBI


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

Error: 0.01,0.021,0.022,0.89


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.


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.

List all modules used in the test suite in META.yml test_requires


  • Apache::Test
  • Apache::TestRequest


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: Apache::AuthDigest, Apache::AuthDigest::API, Apache::AuthDigest::API::Full, Apache::AuthDigest::API::Multi, Apache::AuthDigest::API::Session, Apache::AuthDigestDBI, Apache::AuthzDigest

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