Kwalitee Issues


Take a look at the META.yml Spec at (for version 1.4) or (for version 2), and change your META.yml accordingly.

Error: Missing mandatory field, 'abstract' (abstract) [Validation: 1.4];value is an undefined string (abstract) [Validation: 1.4]


Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install it.


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

Error: XML-Schematron-1.09/lib/XML/Schematron/ -- Around line 126: '=item' outside of any '=over' Around line 179: '=item' outside of any '=over' XML-Schematron-1.09/lib/XML/Schematron/ -- Around line 105: =cut found outside a pod block. Skipping to next block.


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.


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.


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.


  • XML::Schematron
  • XML::Schematron::LibXSLT
  • XML::Schematron::Schema
  • XML::Schematron::SchemaReader
  • XML::Schematron::Test
  • XML::Schematron::XPath
  • XML::Schematron::XSLTProcessor


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).


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