It's held up on SSL.  Ubuntu 20.04 changed some security parameter 
tunings, which breaks some uses of the SSL module, and approximately 
eight modules in the test suite.  I assume this wasn't caught on the 
buildbots because they don't use Ubuntu--or at least not a build that 
fresh.  SSL and the test suite are all completely happy on older Ubuntu 

One could argue "it's fine, most people still using 3.5 are also using 
old OSes anyway".  But I don't want to release 3.5.10 if important 
functionality is broken on a popular OS.  
How does 3.5.9 work on the same system?  If it gives out the same
errors, then I'm sure there's much of a bother.
... then I'm /not/ sure, sorry.
