These three bugs look appropriate to SRU. Thank you for working on them!

I see that the uploads in the queue are for upstream microreleases,
rather than cherry-picks. This is also fine, but only if the
requirements are met as documented at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates#New_upstream_microreleases.

However I see no documentation about how xfwm4 upstream meets the
requirements or if they do at all. Please could you provide further
information on this?

Title:
  xfwm4 very, very slow - leaking something?

Status in Xfwm4:
  Unknown
Status in xfwm4 package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed
Status in xfwm4 source package in Focal:
  In Progress
Status in xfwm4 source package in Groovy:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  [Impact]

   * There is an error leak in the Xfwm4 compositor, causing the system
  to run slowly after some uptime.

  [Test Plan]

   * Enable the Xfwm4 compositor if it is not already. Settings Manager
  > Window Manager Tweaks > Compositor > Toggle on "Enable Display
  Compositing".

   * Use the desktop for some time. Reportedly, zooming in and out
  repeatedly can speed up the process. To zoom, hold Alt, and scroll up
  and down.

   * The system should start performing poorly after some time, with
  xfwm4 consuming much of the CPU resources.

   * Once fixed, the system should be much more performant after
  performing these tasks.

  [Where problems could occur]

   * Regression potential should be relatively low, as the release
  between 4.14.1 and 4.14.5 are bug releases.

   * With window managers, some changes could lead to different behavior
  and other broken displays. Non-AMD graphics users should also test for
  regressions.

  [Other Info]
   
   * Please see the Xfwm4 release notes for changes between 4.14.1 and 4.14.5: https://gitlab.xfce.org/xfce/xfwm4/-/blob/xfce-4.14/NEWS#L7-44

  [Original Report]

  After some uptime, xfwm4 is VERY slow at something, to the point that
  it's consuming 100% of CPU on a Xeon system and making the system
  entirely unusable. I don't know who is leaking what, but somebody is
  clearly leaking something.

  I don't have debug symbols, so this is the best I can get:
