If you have problems related to the current OpenOCD functionality, please use the official OpenOCD support channels.

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 OpenOCD itself (if you have doubts, use the GitHub Discussions), or you have a pertinent suggestion how to enhance the xPack OpenOCD distribution, register a New Issue in the GitHub Issues tracker.
Use of private e-mail
