I must be misreading this, because I don't see why you shouldn't use the exact same pkgver/pkgrel as the original package? If you want to port the modified package to the subsequent pkgrel or pkgver, you can always put the package on hold or figure out another way to be aware of . I think what we should be thinking about is to actually make it easier to serve this need in pacman itself somehow, if there isn't already a practicable way. There seems to be a way to list packages to upgrade before -Syu, IIRC.

If you added an obvious modification to your package or something similar, the dumb (admittedly maybe, not always easily debugged) way to notice that you overwrote a local modification is when it's gone...
