ec 1.28 Latest
Add a Changelog (best named 'Changes') to the distribution. It should list at least major changes implemented in newer versions.
Add a MANIFEST to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it (eg "make manifest" or "./Build manifest")
Add a META.yml to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.
Make sure that the main module name and version are the same of the distribution.
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.
Error: Cannot find MANIFEST in dist.
Remove the POD errors. You can check for POD errors automatically by including Test::Pod to your test suite.

Split the distribution, or fix the version numbers to make them consistent (use the highest version number to avoid version downgrade).
Add a META.json to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.
Add tests or move tests.pl to the t/ directory!
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.
Fix the version numbers so that version::is_lax($version) returns true.

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.
