[arch-general] Kick vtk6 to rebuild?

Hi folks,

The vtk6 package in [community] (unmaintained) currently has Python
extensions which link against libhdf5.so.10 (for example
/opt/vtk6/lib/python2.7/site-packages/vtk/vtkIOAMRPython.so). The
package should have had a dependency on hdf5.

The hdf5 library has had a so version bump since vtk6 was built
(libhdf5.so.10 -> libhdf5.so.100). Would it be possible to just give
the vtk6 package a kick it to rebuild, so that the package in
[community] can keep working for a little longer? It'll probably work
fine if it's just re-built.

I unfortunately don't have time to take over the maintainership of the
aging vtk6. But if it's possible to just trigger a rebuild, that would
be great.

Thanks in advance,
