Small correction:

and the segfaults on these buildbots:

are 3-11 (main branch) only, but they are also quite important to get fixed as soon as possible,
so the buildbot failures don't pile up.

On the other hand, seems that there is a nasty race condition on test_asyncio and many of the refleak
builders for 3.10 hang, rendering them not usefull:

https://bugs.python.org/issue42972: [C API] Heap types (PyType_FromSpec) must fully implement the GC protocol
https://bugs.python.org/issue44043: 3.10 b1 armhf Bus Error in hashlib test: test_gil

We also have the address sanitizer buildbot failing :

and some segmentation faults on the fedora stable buildbot:

Some of these issues have PRs but some of them have not. Please, if you are involved or you maintain one of the
areas involved in these issues, take a look at them and act with one of the following:

* Fix the issue making a PR
* Review an existing PR and / or merge it
* If you intend to mark it as a deferred blocker, please provide a rationale and contact me first by pinging me in the issue.

Until these issues are fixed or deferred, the release team will not be able to make a new beta release.
