Kwalitee Issues


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


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


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

Error: POE-0.25/lib/Test/Harness / -- Around line 58: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • Curses
  • HTTP::Date
  • HTTP::Request
  • HTTP::Response
  • HTTP::Status
  • Term::ReadKey
  • URI


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: Makefile-5004, POE::Loop, POE::Macro::UseBytes, POE::Queue


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

Error: 0.01,0.14,0.25,0.33,1.1,1.10,1.11,1.12,1.14,1.17,1.18,1.19,1.2,1.22,1.23,1.233,1.26,1.27,1.28,1.3,1.30,1.31,1.32,1.35,1.39,1.4,1.42,1.44,1.5,1.61,1.68,1.7,1.83,1.9,2.26


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.


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.

  • Null
  • Test::Harness
  • Test::Harness::Assert
  • Test::Harness::Iterator
  • Test::Harness::Iterator::ARRAY
  • Test::Harness::Iterator::FH

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.

This is not a critical issue. Currently mainly informative for the CPANTS authors. It might be removed later.
