This is quite a big list this time :-/
Let's check what is up for server to address most of them.

Started (listing owner and latest status):
dnsmasq - cpaelzer: fixed, MP is up to fix it in Eoan
dovecot-antispam - cpaelzer: analyzed, no build issue (LP bug on builders)
ipxe - cpaelzer: analyzed and fixed; suggested upstream
squid  - ahasenack: analyzed and fixed; suggested upstream
xen - I pinged smb that he should consider resolving that
simplestreams - chad/corey: this comes down to the py2 removal which
they are assigned
                          @rbasak to drop py2 in simplestreams uvtool
should drop it as well if there is a chance for an upload

Still open for grabbing:

Reply here if you had time to pick and look into one of those.

There also is a bunch of which I think go with the openstack Team,
probably all py2 removal consequences.
I have set James/Corey on CC so that they can confirm that those are
on their todo list.
