Kwalitee Issues


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'


Make sure that the main module name and version are the same of the distribution.


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

Error: Expected a map structure from string or file. (requires) [Validation: 1.0]


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: JPEG/jpeg/cjpeg.1,JPEG/jpeg/cjpeg.c,JPEG/jpeg/djpeg.1,JPEG/jpeg/djpeg.c,JPEG/jpeg/jpegtran.1,JPEG/jpeg/jpegtran.c,JPEG/jpeg/rdjpgcom.1,JPEG/jpeg/rdjpgcom.c,JPEG/jpeg/wrjpgcom.1,JPEG/jpeg/wrjpgcom.c


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

Add 'use strict' (or its equivalents) to all modules, or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules are strictly written.

Error: PreLoad, Tk::After, Tk::Animation, Tk::Bitmap, Tk::Canvas, Tk::Checkbutton, Tk::Compound, Tk::Configure, Tk::DragDrop::Rect, Tk::DragDrop::SunConst, Tk::DragDrop::Win32Drop, Tk::DummyEncode, Tk::English, Tk::Event, Tk::HList, Tk::Image, Tk::ImageBack, Tk::InputO, Tk::ItemStyle, Tk::JPEG, Tk::LabEntry, Tk::LabFrame, Tk::LabRadiobutton, Tk::Label, Tk::Menubutton, Tk::Mwm, Tk::NBFrame, Tk::PNG, Tk::Photo, Tk::Pixmap, Tk::Pretty, Tk::ROText, Tk::Radiobutton, Tk::Reindex, Tk::Scale, Tk::Scrollbar, Tk::Stats, Tk::Submethods, Tk::Text::Tag, Tk::TextEdit, Tk::TextUndo, Tk::Tiler, Tk::Toplevel, Tk::WinPhoto, Tk::Xlib, Tk::Xrm, Tk::install, Tk::widgets


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

Error: 4.002,4.003,4.004,4.005,4.006,4.007,4.008,4.009,4.010,4.011,4.012,4.013,4.014,4.015,4.017,4.018,4.020,4.028,804.025


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


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.


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.

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.

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).
