[Bug 1821888] [NEW] Please backport xerces-c 3.2.0+debian-2 (universe) from bionic

Please backport xerces-c 3.2.0+debian-2 (universe) from bionic to
Reason for the backport:
Xerces-C 3.2 is a build dependency of the Shibboleth SP version 3. I would like to update (backport or SRU) the whole Shibboleth SP stack (log4shib, xml-security-c, xmltooling, opensaml, shibboleth-sp) to version 3 in xenial and compiling with Xerces-C 3.2 is required for that.
This would fix issues like LP#1636590 and LP#1812401.
Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.
You can test-build the backport in your PPA with backportpackage:
$ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s bionic -d xenial xerces-c
[X] Package builds without modification
[X] libxerces-c-samples-dbgsym installs cleanly and runs
[X] libxerces-c3.2 installs cleanly and runs
[X] libxerces-c-samples installs cleanly and runs
[X] libxerces-c-doc installs cleanly and runs
[X] libxerces-c-dev installs cleanly and runs
[X] libxerces-c3.2-dbgsym installs cleanly and runs
The following reverse-dependencies need to be tested against the new version of xerces-c. For reverse-build-dependencies (-Indep), please test that the package still builds against the new xerces-c. For reverse-dependencies, please test that the version of the package currently in the release still works with the new xerces-c installed. Reverse- Recommends, Suggests, and Enhances don't need to be tested, and are listed for completeness-sake.
Please backport xerces-c 3.2.0+debian-2 (universe) from bionic
