I think this can be solved by clarifying what upstream is.

example :
archlinux foo package has foo.org as upstream
archlinux32 uses archlinux foo package as base , upstream = archlinux
manjaro32 uses archlinux32 package as base , upstream = archlinux32

say foo is at version 8.2.5
archlinux has 8.2.5-2
archlinux32 then uses 8.2.5.arch.2 as pkgver and adds 3 as their pkgrel
manjaro32 uses as pkgver and their own pkgrel.

This shows the chain between downstream and all upstreams .
