Add a META.yml to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.
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 (5) does not match dist (6):
- Missing in MANIFEST: README
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.
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.
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.
This is not a critical issue. Currently mainly informative for the CPANTS authors. It might be removed later.
