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


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


Change the permissions of Build.PL/Makefile.PL to not-executable.


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


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

Error: XML-AutoWriter-0.39/lib/XML/ -- Around line 333: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' XML-AutoWriter-0.39/lib/XML/Doctype/ -- Around line 40: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' Around line 42: '=item' outside of any '=over' Around line 164: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' XML-AutoWriter-0.39/lib/XML/Doctype/ -- Around line 46: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' Around line 48: '=item' outside of any '=over' Around line 333: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' XML-AutoWriter-0.39/lib/XML/ -- Around line 81: '=item' outside of any '=over' Around line 464: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'


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.


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: XML::AutoWriter, XML::Doctype, XML::Doctype::AttDef, XML::Doctype::ElementDecl, XML::ValidWriter


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

Error: 0.1,0.11,0.38


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.
