Kwalitee Issues


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


Fix MANIFEST.SKIP or use an authoring tool which respects MANIFEST.SKIP. Note that each entry in MANIFEST.SKIP is a regular expression. You may need to add appropriate meta characters not to ignore necessary stuff.

Error: MANIFEST.SKIP,Makefile.old


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.


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 (558) does not match dist (587):
  • Missing in MANIFEST:, Makefile.old, check, demo/, demo/piddle.mvg, demo/, demo/shapes.gif, demo/stegano.gif, t/bzlib/input.miff.bz2, t/jng/gray_idat_tmp.jng, t/jng/gray_jdaa_tmp.jng, t/jng/gray_prog_idat_tmp.jng, t/jng/gray_prog_jdaa_tmp.jng, t/jng/gray_prog_tmp.jng, t/jng/gray_tmp.jng, t/jng/idat_tmp.jng, t/jng/jdaa_tmp.jng, t/jng/prog_idat_tmp.jng, t/jng/prog_jdaa_tmp.jng, t/jng/prog_tmp.jng, t/openjp2/input.j2k, t/reference/composite/CopyOpacity.miff, t/reference/filter/input.gif, t/reference/filter/, t/reference/write/composite/CopyOpacity.miff, t/reference/write/jp2/read_jp2.miff, t/reference/write/jp2/read_jpc.miff, t/reference/write/jp2/read_pgx.miff, t/zlib/input.miff.gz


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.


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: Image::Magick


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