Kwalitee Issues


Add a Changelog (best named 'Changes') to the distribution. It should list at least major changes implemented in newer versions.


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


Make sure that the main module name and version are the same of the distribution.


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.


Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/' for a module named 'Your::Module'. If you need to provide additional files, e.g. for testing, that should not be considered for Kwalitee, then you should look at the 'provides' map in META.yml to limit the files scanned; or use the 'no_index' map to exclude parts of the distribution.

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: gurpm::RPMProgressDialog, gurpmi, urpm, urpm::bug_report, urpm::cdrom, urpm::download, urpm::get_pkgs, urpm::install, urpm::lock, urpm::main_loop, urpm::md5sum, urpm::media, urpm::mirrors, urpm::msg, urpm::orphans, urpm::parallel, urpm::parallel_ka_run, urpm::parallel_ssh, urpm::prompt, urpm::removable, urpm::select, urpm::signature, urpm::util, urpm::xml_info, urpm::xml_info_pkg


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.


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