You should never revbump a port just to get the buildbot to build something. *Any* change made to a port will trigger a buildbot build if one is necessary.

If you are a MacPorts developer with commit access, you can log in to the buildbot to force builds of any ports that for whatever reason did not get built normally (for example if there was build server downtime and I somehow neglected to schedule builds for those ports that were modified during the downtime). If a MacPorts developer with commit access does not have a buildbot login, they can ask me and I can make one.

Note that the ports web site is not currently importing new build information due to a problem [1]. If you'd like to be notified when the problem is resolved you can Cc yourself on that ticket.

According to geos @5.0.1_1 was built for all platforms (except 10.15 [2]) on March 6/7 including arm64.
