Notify maintainers

Can maintainers of packages marked as broken fix your respective packages in a separate PR and reference this PR so I can drop those commits setting broken = true?
cc @fpletz @nlewo

Also CCing the contributors who latest updated those packages:
@volth @kamilchm

I'd like a solution to all filebeats version using pinned old compiler versions, they are currently the only thing left in the tree referencing buildGo111Package.

I'm going to split this into two PRs: One handling Go 1.10 and one handling Go 1.11.
