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]


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.



Remove the offending files/directories!

Error: Makefile, pm_to_blib


Rename those files with alphanumerical characters, or maybe remove them because in many cases they are automatically generated for local installation.


  • blib/man3/Gtk2::GladeXML.3pm


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 (32) does not match dist (46):
  • Missing in MANIFEST:, GladeXML.c, GladeXML.o, Makefile, blib/arch/Gtk2/GladeXML/Install/, blib/arch/Gtk2/GladeXML/Install/gladexmlperl.h, blib/arch/Gtk2/GladeXML/Install/gladexmlperl.typemap, blib/arch/auto/Gtk2/GladeXML/, blib/arch/auto/Gtk2/GladeXML/, blib/lib/Gtk2/, blib/man3/Gtk2::GladeXML.3pm, blibdirs, build/, pm_to_blib


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: GladeXML::Install::Files, GladeXML::Install::Files


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: GladeXML::Install::Files, GladeXML::Install::Files


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).
