Kwalitee Issues


Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install 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 (46) does not match dist (36):
  • Missing in Dist: README, Youri-Repository-0.1.2/ChangeLog, Youri-Repository-0.1.2/Makefile.PL, Youri-Repository-0.1.2/lib/Youri/Repository/, t/kwalitee.t, t/perlcritic.t, t/pod-coverage.t, t/pod.t, t/prereq.t, t/test.t


Rename those files with alphanumerical characters, or maybe remove them because in many cases they are automatically generated for local installation.


  • Youri-Repository-0.1.2/blib/man3/Youri::Repository.3pm
  • Youri-Repository-0.1.2/blib/man3/Youri::Repository::Test.3pm


If you are using Build.PL define the {requires}{perl} = VERSION field. If you are using MakeMaker (Makefile.PL) you should upgrade ExtUtils::MakeMaker to 6.48 and use MIN_PERL_VERSION parameter. Perl::MinimumVersion can help you determine which version of Perl your module needs.


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.

Error: Youri-Repository-0.1.2/blib/lib/Youri/, Youri-Repository-0.1.2/lib/Youri/, Youri-Repository-0.1.2/blib/lib/Youri/Repository/


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


Add all modules contained in this distribution to the META.yml field 'provides'. Module::Build or Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides do this automatically for you.


Add a 'repository' resource to the META.yml via 'meta_add' accessor (for Module::Build) or META_ADD parameter (for ExtUtils::MakeMaker).
