I have recently worked on these issues (in the last two weeks, in fact). :-)

Most of these issues are no-dsa, either very minor from a security point of
view or the patches are too unclear/unstable to be applied currently.

The only recently postponed issue is CVE-2019-13391/CVE-2019-13308. I did not
upload this patch because it is big, not really understandable, and
undocumented. Upstream did not answer my questions yet.

I'd just remove imagemagick from dla-needed and wait some time, until upstream
clarifies this patch. If he doesn't, I'd just mark this no-dsa.
