Module::CPANTS::Kwalitee::Distros - Information retrieved from the various Linux and other distributions
The metrics here were based on data provided by the various downstream packaging systems, but are deprecated now. The list is only preserved for historical reasons.
Defines the order in which Kwalitee tests should be run.
Returns the Kwalitee Indicators datastructure.
True if the module (package) is repackaged by the Debian-Perl team and you can install it using the package management system of Debian.
True if the latest version of the module (package) is repackaged by Debian
True for if the module is distributed by Debian and no bugs were reported.
True for if the module is distributed by Debian and no patches applied.
CPAN_dist, the name of CPAN distribution is inferred from the download location, for Debian packages. It works 99% of the time, but it is not completely reliable. If it fails to detect something, it will spit out the known download location.
CPAN_vers, the version number reported by Debian is inferred from the debian version. This fails a lot, since Debian has a mechanism for "unmangling" upstream versions which is non-reversible. We have to use that many times to fix versioning problems, and those packages will show a different version (e.g. 1.080 vs 1.80)
The first problem is something the Debian people like to solve by adding metadata to the packages, for many other useful stuff (like automatic upstream bug tracking and handling). About the second... well, it's a difficult one.
CPANTS does not yet handle the second issue.
