As I am usually using Module::Build I did not know that a recent
version of MakeMaker
has started to support the LICENSE parameter and will include it in
the automatically
created META.yml. That in turn will increase your kwalitee metric....

In addition it is also very useful as it show up on the results page
of search.cpan.org
and is easily machine readable.

You only need to add

LICENSE             => 'perl',

to Makefile.PL as it can be seen here:
http://search.cpan.org/src/PETDANCE/ack-1.78/Makefile.PL
