Kwalitee Issues


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 (26) does not match dist (33):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: ._META.yml, ._Makefile.PL, ._README, lib/W3C/, lib/W3C/LogValidator/, lib/W3C/LogValidator/, t/._module-css.t


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: W3C::._LogValidator, W3C::LogValidator::._Basic, W3C::LogValidator::._LinkChecker


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


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.


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.


  • ._META.yml
  • ._Makefile.PL
  • ._README
  • lib/W3C/
  • lib/W3C/LogValidator/
  • lib/W3C/LogValidator/
  • t/._module-css.t


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: W3C::._LogValidator, W3C::LogValidator, W3C::LogValidator::._Basic, W3C::LogValidator::._LinkChecker, W3C::LogValidator::Config, W3C::LogValidator::HTMLValidator, W3C::LogValidator::Output::HTML, W3C::LogValidator::Output::Mail, W3C::LogValidator::Output::Raw


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

Error: 0.1,1.002,1.007,1.010,1.011,1.012,1.013,1.016,1.019,1.022,1.027


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.
