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: Expected a list structure (author) [Validation: 1.3];License '<undef>' is invalid (license) [Validation: 1.3];Missing mandatory field, 'abstract' (abstract) [Validation: 1.3];Missing mandatory field, 'author' (author) [Validation: 1.3];Missing mandatory field, 'license' (license) [Validation: 1.3];value is an undefined string (abstract) [Validation: 1.3]


Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install 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: Devel-Events-0.04


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 (41) does not match dist (39):
  • Missing in Dist: Devel-Events-0.04/Changes, lib/Devel/Events/Filter/


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

Sign the dist as the last step before creating the archive. Take care not to modify/regenerate dist meta files or the manifest.

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.


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: Devel-Events-0.04/lib/Devel/Events/Filter/


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 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.
