385|Test::Pod
This makes me sad. Here are 385 obvious and trivially-fixable bugs on CPAN.

    Hmm, what do you mean with that? Do you mean that distributions don't have to come with Test::Pod? What about Test::Pod::Coverage?

      I mean that testing documentation on installation is stupid and wrong. These are tests that should be run only by the module author.

        Ah yes, I see what you mean. I don't understand why eg. kwalitee requires each distribution to have a distributed pod and pod-coverage test.

        Same thing with most other (usually regression) tests, eg. when you write tests for your API that doesn't depend on anything which is different from system to system. Or a protocol implementation test, also doesn't need to be distributed, or at least doesn't need to run on installation.
