Use the OpenOCD support channels

Ask questions in the forums

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 xPack forums, and enter a New Topic in the OpenOCD section.

Register a new support ticket only if necessary

If you are convinced that you identified a bug related to the binary distribution, not OpenOCD itself (if you have doubts, use the forum), or you have a pertinent suggestion how to enhance the xPack OpenOCD distribution, register a New Issue in the the GitHub issues tracker.
