Kwalitee Issues


Take a look at the META.json Spec at (for version 1.4) or (for version 2), and change your META.json accordingly.


Upgrade your META.json generator so it produces valid JSON.

Error: invalid character encountered while parsing JSON string, at character offset 82 (before "\r",\n "author" : ...")


Upgrade your YAML generator so it produces valid YAML.

Error: CPAN::Meta::YAML does not support a feature in line '"A smart, easy and powerful way to access/create XML files/data.'


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

Error: XML-Smart-1.71/lib/XML/Sm -- Around line 2121: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding in '<data>À</data>'. Assuming UTF-8


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • Object::MultiType


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

Error: 0.01,0.03,1.1,1.3,1.71


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.


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