Ask questions in GitHub Discussions

If you still could not find a solution, if you have interesting use cases, if you have custom configurations, and generally if you have any experience that you want to share with others, use the GitHub Discussions, and enter a New discussion in the Q&A category.

Register a new support ticket only if necessary

If you are convinced that you identified a bug related to the binary distribution, not GNU Make itself (if you have doubts, use the GitHub Discussions), or you have a pertinent suggestion how to enhance the xPack Windows Build Tools distribution, register a New Issue in the GitHub Issues tracker.
