Kwalitee Issues


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 (163) does not match dist (164):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: ._Makefile.PL


Upgrade the bundled version of Module::Install to at least 0.89, but preferably to the most current release. Alternatively, you can switch to another build system / installer that does not suffer from this problem. (ExtUtils::MakeMaker, Module::Build both of which have their own set of problems.)

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

Error: *** ERROR: unresolved internal link '[% rootname %]' at line 584 in file Catalyst-5.6901/lib/Catalyst/ *** ERROR: unresolved internal link '[% name %]' at line 617 in file Catalyst-5.6901/lib/Catalyst/ *** ERROR: unresolved internal link '[% app %]' at line 1079 in file Catalyst-5.6901/lib/Catalyst/


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

Error: 0.06,0.14,5.6901


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


If you use Mac OS X, set COPYFILE_DISABLE (for OS 10.5 and better) or COPY_EXTENDED_ATTRIBUTES_DISABLE (for OS 10.4) environmental variable to true to exclude dot underscore files from a distribution.


  • ._Makefile.PL


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.


  • Module::Install::Catalyst


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: Catalyst, Catalyst::Action, Catalyst::ActionContainer, Catalyst::AttrContainer, Catalyst::Base, Catalyst::Build, Catalyst::Component, Catalyst::Controller, Catalyst::DispatchType, Catalyst::DispatchType::Default, Catalyst::DispatchType::Index, Catalyst::DispatchType::Path, Catalyst::DispatchType::Regex, Catalyst::Dispatcher, Catalyst::Engine, Catalyst::Engine::CGI, Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI, Catalyst::Engine::HTTP, Catalyst::Exception, Catalyst::Helper, Catalyst::Log, Catalyst::Model, Catalyst::Request, Catalyst::Request::Upload, Catalyst::Response, Catalyst::Utils, Catalyst::View, Module::Install::Catalyst


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).
